T. Mariotti floats out expedition ship Seabourn Venture

Seabourn Venture exits the building dock
T. Mariotti in Genoa floated out expedition ship Seabourn Venture with Jarda Versloot-West, Seabourn’s senior manager of expedition staffing, serving as madrina.

Versloot-West joined Seabourn nearly a decade ago for the brand’s maiden voyage to Antarctica. Also on hand were Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz and T. Mariotti Managing Director Marco Ghiglione.

Delivery set for March 1, 2022

Seabourn Venture will now move from the drydock to the outfitting dock. Delivery, which was recently set back due to pandemic-related challenges, is set for March 1, 2022. The maiden voyage is to take place April 10 next year.

'The dedication of all people involved in the construction is a matter of pride for T. Mariotti, and we are absolutely sure that we are building something special: a unique ship that will be the top in the luxury cruise expedition market,' Ghiglione said.

Sister ship in 2023

A sister ship is scheduled for hand-over February 2023.
