Lindblad steel cutting

CONSTRUCTION is underway for Lindblad Expeditions' first polar new build, with the cruise line and Ulstein Verft celebrating the steel cutting late last week. Taking place in Ulsteinvik, Norway, the milestone was supervised by Janusz Stechly at DNV-GL and yard reps Ole Osnes Gjerde and Marek Lewczuk. The ship, scheduled for delivery in 2020, will feature x-bow technology to improve comfort in rough seas, a very high ice class and expanded fuel and water tanks for extended operations in remote areas. The steel cutting is pictured.
