More Details on Five-Year Shipbuilding Program for MV Werften

Genting Hong Kong Executive Chairman, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, had released more details on the company’s plans for MV Werften.

He confirmed the shipyard group will build four Rhine-class river ships for Crystal River Cruises, for delivery in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Star Cruises will get its two Global-class 201,000-ton ships in 2020, and 2021, and Crystal will get its first Endeavor-class 20,000-ton yacht in 2019, followed by more deliveries in 2022 and 2021.
After 2021, the company said it will be able to produce two Global-class and two Endeavor-class ships per year.

“This is excellent confirmation of the ship deliveries by Genting as MV Werften is moving rapidly in basic and detailed design of the Endeavor- and Global-class ships. Meanwhile the entire hulls of the first two river ships are already completed due for delivery in 2017 and we will be cutting steel for the third and fourth river ships in January of next year for delivery in 2018,” said Jarmo Laakso, managing director, MV Werften.
