Seabourn Takes Delivery of Seabourn Pursuit

Seabourn has taken delivery of its second expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, during an official handover maritime ceremony at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Italy’s Genoa. This is the company’s second purpose-built, ultra-luxury expedition ship.

Seabourn Pursuit offers guests a “yacht-like” small-ship experience, enhanced by a range of activities led by a 24-person expedition team of scientists, scholars, naturalists and more. The ship is designed and built for remote, diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include a plethora of modern hardware and technology that will extend the ship’s global deployment and capabilities. Seabourn Pursuit has close to 30,000 square feet of deck space and "special touches at every turn." Those include indoor and outdoor guest areas with nearly 270-degree views and a 4K GSS Cineflex Camera mounted on the mast of the Constellation Lounge, capable of broadcasting imagery from miles ahead on monitors located throughout the ship and in guest suites.

In addition, Seabourn Pursuit offers eight dining facilities serving gourmet cuisine and all-suite accommodations, including a pair of two-level Wintergarden suites.

Seabourn Pursuit is scheduled to enter service August 12, 2023, and will sail five voyages in the Mediterranean before embarking on two voyages across the Atlantic and through the Caribbean. On October 10, the ship will arrive in Barbados to begin its expedition journeys, taking guests to remote corners of the globe. The ship will head south for expeditions exploring coastal South America, the Amazon, and Antarctica into late March 2024.

Following its inaugural Antarctic season, the ship will head across the islands of the South Pacific and eventually to Australia, which will be the start of the line’s first exploration of the Kimberley region in the Northern Territory and Western Australia between June and August 2024. Seabourn Pursuit will also visit Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Indonesia, and sail across the South Pacific between Chile and Melanesia between March and October 2024.
