March 29, 2021, the hull, now completed, of the new ship that the T. Mariotti shipyard is building for the Seabourn Cruises company has left Porto Nogaro and after a stop in Trieste it will sail to Genoa where the subsequent final outfitting phase will then begin.
in view of the delivery scheduled for the end of the year.
The hull was positioned aboard a Cimolai semi-submersible barge destined to be towed to Liguria and circumnavigating Italy, it will require the use of four pilots and four tugs. It is in fact an extraordinary event because it is the first time that in Porto Nogaro a barge will transport a 200-meter-long ship.
The major problems are in fact represented by the conformation of the Corno river which is very narrow in some sections.
Cimolai, shareholder together with T. Mariotti of the Cimar shipyard in San Giorgio di Nogaro, has materially carried out all the carpentry work necessary to give life to the 'skeleton' of the 23,000-ton ship which in Genoa, over the next few months, will it will be filled with the latest equipment and furnishings on board.
Last September, also at the Cimar shipyard in Porto Nogaro, the construction of the second ship for Seabourn was also started and delivery is scheduled for 2022.
