National Geographic Explorer to undergo three week technical work at Lloyd Werft

Lindblad Expedition’s 112mtr long National Geographic Explorer is due to arrive at Lloyd Werft tomorrow for a first visit to the Bremerhaven facility.  

During a three-week stay, the ship will undergo comprehensive technical work mainly repairs to the thruster, rudder and shaft plant and class renewal of the ice-class ship for Det Norske Veritas.

‘This contract is just right for us’, said a satisfied Rüdiger Pallentin, board member of Lloyd Werft. He sees the first visit of  the expedition ship as a dry run for further possible orders, particularly since the shipping company has a second ship of similar design, he remarked.

After a 2008 conversion, Lindblad Expeditions put the 6,471gt ship with 81 cabins mainly into Arctic and Antarctic cruising.
