Lindblad Expeditions is celebrating a major milestone, as National Geographic Resolution arrives at Ulstein Shipyard in Norway.
Lindblad Expeditions has marked another major milestone as the hull of National Geographic Resolution, the line’s second polar new build, arrived at Ulstein Shipyard in Ulsteinvik Norway, following the construction of the main hull steel work at CRIST S.A. in Gydnia, Poland.
National Geographic Resolution arrived under tow with 100% of structure steel and major foundation work having been competed at Crist S.A.
The ship currently has all bow thruster, major HVAC equipment, main engines and stabilisers installed.
With the arrival of the vessel in Ulstein all the electrical and hotel outfitting will be completed.
She will be the Sister ship to the soon to launch 126-guest National Geographic Endurance – the first polar build in the line’s history.
Tell me more…
National Geographic Resolution is a fully stabilised, next-generation expedition ship, purpose-built for year-round polar navigation.
The Polar Class 5 National Geographic Resolution will feature Ulstein’s signature X-BOW®, that provides fuel efficiency while significantly improving guest comfort in rough seas; and a very high ice class for access deep into Polar Regions.
She will provide an extremely smooth ride in adverse conditions, and even reduces spray on deck, for superior observation, while you’re soaking up the views while sipping on your morning coffee.
She carries a full suite of expedition tools and offers a variety of experience-enhancing amenities, such as kayaks, underwater cameras, a hydrophone, electronic charts, and an open bridge.
Get excited, because National Geographic Resolution is scheduled for delivery in 2021.
