Fincantieri's Ancona yard floats out Silver Dawn

Silver Dawn is scheduled for delivery in November
Silver Dawn, the sister of recently delivered Silver Moon, was floated out at Fincantieri's Ancona shipyard today.

Delivery of the 40,700gt, 596-passenger ship is scheduled for November.

Silver Dawn will become the 10th vessel in Silversea Cruises' fleet, following the additions of both Silver Origin and Silver Moon in 2020.

Enhancements planned

'Our long-term collaboration with Fincantieri continues to push boundaries in the ultra-luxury cruise industry, while the ongoing support and expertise of the Royal Caribbean Group has been invaluable to the ship’s build,' Silversea President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said. 'While Silver Dawn takes influence from our beloved ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon, our guests will benefit from many pioneering enhancements aboard the 10th ship in our fleet. We look forward to revealing these in the coming months.'

Fourth Fincantieri build for Silversea

'Based on the very successful design of Silver Muse, Silver Dawn is the fourth ship we will have built for Silversea,' noted Luigi Matarazzo, general manager merchant ships division of Fincantieri. 'For a shipbuilder there can be no better acknowledgement than the one of a demanding and prestigious owner who welcomes innovation with enthusiasm.'

Silver Moon was delivered by the Ancona yard in October, while 2017's Silver Muse was built at Sestri Ponente.
