Acclaimed NASA scientist Dr. Kathy Sullivan has been named Godmother to the new Scenic Eclipse II.
“We are immensely proud to have Dr. Sullivan as Godmother to Scenic Eclipse II,” said chief sales and marketing officer of Scenic Group, Anna Wolfsteiner, in a statement.
“She truly is the living embodiment of what our yachts stand for – pushing boundaries, making discoveries and reveling in a sense of adventure. Throughout her career, Dr. Sullivan has grasped life’s opportunities and committed herself to advancing our knowledge of the world around us. We believe the guests who travel aboard our Discovery Yachts share that same passion and curiosity to explore and learn.”
Dr. Sullivan is known as the first American woman to complete a spacewalk and has been to space three times. She is also the first person to both orbit the Earth and dive to the Challenger Deep, known as the deepest point in the Earth’s oceans. She thus earned the title of the World’s Most Vertical Person.
“It’s a high honor to be a ship’s Godmother,” said Dr. Sullivan. “I’m especially delighted to be Godmother to a vessel as well-designed for exploration and discovery as Scenic Eclipse II.”
She will officially christen the Scenic Eclipse II at a ceremony in Malaga, Spain scheduled for June 3 2023.
