Luxury cruise line Silversea has agreed a deal with the shipbuilder Fincantieri to build a new sister ship to Silver Muse.
The new vessel, which will launch in 2021, will be be named Silver Dawn. It will be the 11th ship in Silversea’s fleet.
The company previously had one ship on order with Fincantieri, for Silver Moon, which is due to launch in 2020.
“Following the extraordinary success of Silver Muse, we are delighted to announce Silver Dawn as the eleventh ship to join the Silversea fleet,” Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s chairman, said.
“Silver Dawn will bear the same hallmarks of quality that guests currently enjoy on our 6-star ships. We look forward to welcoming guests aboard in November 2021. It was my father’s dream to grow Silversea to at least a 12-ship fleet; today, we are one step closer to fulfilling his vision.”
Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said: “It is a great satisfaction for our group to see an ambitious project like Silver Muse establish itself on the market and get the highest appreciation from an exclusive and demanding customer like Silversea, that today confirms his trust in us. Thanks to this partnership, based on the quality of the product, our leadership position in the cruise sector is further strengthened, not only from a technological point of view, but also for the commercial ability to find the best agreement with the shipowner.”
