Big news from the cruise industry: SeaDream Yacht Club has announced that, for the first time since its founding in 2001, it is expanding its fleet with SeaDream Innovation, a new yacht, which will introduce the concept of “Global Yachting.” Commencing sailing in September 2021, the ultra-luxury yacht will sail to all seven continents in its first year, visiting over 200 ports in 49 countries. SeaDream Innovation will visit such destinations as Svalbard, the Northwest Passage, Antarctica, the fjords of Norway, Japan, New Zealand, the Fiji Islands and the Great Barrier Reef.
SeaDream is now accepting reservations from Club Members, guests who have previously sailed aboard SeaDream’s classic yachts, SeaDream I and SeaDream II. Reservations will open to the public on April 17.
Atle Brynestad, owner, chairman and CEO of SeaDream, says in a written release that he helped designed “every aspect of this yacht, from the interiors and facilities to the itineraries.”
With just 110 ocean-view suites, SeaDream Innovation will offer an intimate setting and all-inclusive vacation with a one-to-one guest to crew ratio. All spaces and facilities have been designed to elevate the guest experience at sea, including three marinas and outdoor dining. At 15,600 gross tons and measuring just over 500 feet, the mega-yacht will follow in the tradition of excellence set by its predecessors, including five-star dining, luxury accommodations, generous outdoor spaces and inspiring itineraries.
SeaDream Yacht Club will be working with Damen Shipyards, which is based in Gorinchem, Netherlands.
