SunStone Maritime Group, a leading provider of expedition vessels, celebrated this significant milestone with key stakeholders and industry partners, according to a press release.
“With the steel cutting of the seventh and final ship in the Infinity series, we mark the completion of a remarkable journey,” said Niels-Erik Lund, CEO at SunStone Maritime Group. “These vessels exemplify our commitment to providing exceptional expedition cruises with a focus on comfort, safety, and sustainability.”
The PC6 expedition cruise ship, yet to be named, will embark on a long-term charter upon its delivery.
The ship is expected to enter service in 2025.
