Construction Begins on Polar Expedition Passenger Ship by Brodosplit

Brodosplit has something new up their sleeve…

A rather exciting new project commenced at the largest shipyard in Croatia yesterday when Brodosplit began cutting steel for the new Polar Expedition Passenger Ship, contracted with Polar Expeditions Inc, reports Dalmacija Danas on August 22, 2017. 

This polar cruise ship will be the first ship built in the “LR PC6” class, which will meet the latest Lloyd Registry requirements for “Polar Class 6” vessels from Brodosplit. The ship will be 107.6 meters long, 17.6 meters wide, and run at 15 knots through two main engines with a total output of 4260 kW. The ship will be able to accommodate 196 passengers in 85 cabins.

The design and all technical solutions will be created by Brodosplit’s designers, whose work will confirm their pivotal role in positioning Brodosplit high on the list of technical competencies and architectural competitiveness.

The boat will be equipped with stabilizers and will be well-suited for advanced and innovative exploration trips in the Arctic and Antarctic areas. There will even be 15 inflatable boats and equipment so that passengers can visit the glaciers above and below sea level, allowing them to observe this unique biological and animal world from the best perspectives. 

This polar cruise ship will also offer its passengers a high-quality and varied accommodation offer, boasting different categories of cabins – from spacious apartments to two-room and four-room capacities – where guests will be provided with a safe and comfortable stay. 

The ship will be available to the first travelers in the Arctic season in March 2019.
