Discovery yacht takes shape
THE countdown is on for Scenic Eclipse’s world debut in Athens next August.
Scenic founder and managing director Glen Moroney said interest in the world’s first discovery yacht had been high. Strong early sales had ensured the first sailing from Athens to Venice, as well as several subsequent departures, were sold out.
Scenic Eclipse is under construction at Uljanik Shipyard JSC in Pula, Croatia.
With several Antarctic and Arctic itineraries planned for her inaugural season, Scenic Eclipse is being built to comply with new International Maritime Organisation Polar Code requirements.
The six-star ship will carry 228 guests.
As well as cruises to Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, Scenic Eclipse will offer a series of Mediterranean sojourns, as well as cruises to South America and a series of rediscovery cruises ranging in length from five to 15 days.
The itineraries are subject to availability and terms and conditions apply.
