National Geographic Endurance is nearing completion at Ulstein Verft for a scheduled January delivery
Ulstein Verft floated out National Geographic Endurance, the first polar newbuild for Lindblad Expeditions.

The 126-passenger vessel has a Polar Class 5 rating and zero-speed stabilizers to ensure stability when stationary or underway.

Patented X-BOW design

Ulstein’s patented X-BOW design provides better seakeeping and fuel efficiency, while expanded fuel and water tanks provide for extended operations in remote areas.

National Geographic Endurance is scheduled for delivery in January.
