The countdown is on until Scenic Eclipse – the World’s First Discovery Yacht – makes her world debut in Athens on 31 August 2018.
Soney said interest in the ship’s inaugural season had been high with strong early sales ensuring the first sailing from Athens to Venice, as well as several subsequent departures, had sold out.
“The level of excitement and anticipation we are getting from our booked guests tells us we have hit the nail right on the head. The market for true luxury in both small ships and expedition itineraries is heating up and we are proud to be able to put forth a ship we believe will exceed expectations,” Mr Moroney said.
Scenic Eclipse is currently under construction at Uljanik Shipyard JSC in Pula, Croatia. Progress since the keel-laying ceremony on April 28 has continued on schedule, with the ship’s bow thrusters, which provide more manoeuvrability when docking, installed earlier this month.
