T. Mariotti delivered the 264-passenger Seabourn Venture, the first of two purpose-built expedition ships for Seabourn.

'The Mariotti team has done a wonderful job in the building of the ship and bringing Adam Tihany's stunning design vision to life,' Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz said. 'Seabourn Venture will raise the bar in ultra-luxury expedition travel, and we look forward to introducing her to the world as she sets sail to explore remote destinations from the polar regions in the Arctic to the southernmost continent of Antarctica.'
