Seabourn starts construction of new ultra-luxury ship

Apr. 17, 2015

Construction of the much-anticipated Seabourn Encore is officially under way, the first steel ceremonially cut at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy. The innovative, 600-passenger ship will debut in late 2016, the first newbuild for the luxury line in five years.

“The cutting of steel for Seabourn Encore is an important milestone in the evolution of both our beautiful fleet and the ultra-luxury cruise segment overall,” said Seabourn President Richard Meadows, adding that Seabourn Encore will be “the most beautiful ultra-luxury ship ever built.”

At the steel-cutting ceremony, the line also paid tribute to Seabourn Legend, the last of its original fleet of 208-passenger ships (all three of which have now been acquired by Windstar Cruises). Two crewmembers from Seabourn Legend, on its final cruise under the Seabourn banner, were present.

Designed by Adam D. Tihany, the all-suite, all-balcony Seabourn Encore will join a fleet of three stunning, 550-passenger Odyssey-class ships built between 2009 and 2011. Sister ship Seabourn Ovation is due in 2018.
