Swan Hellenic has revealed a timelapse video showing the construction of Minerva, the new company’s first vessel.
Swan Hellenic is a relaunched version of the brand that originally launched in 1950 and went into administration in 2017.
Minerva will be the first of at least three expedition-style vessels. It is due to launch later this year.
Esko Karvonen, CEO of Helsinki Shipyard Inc. said: “We are very proud of the smooth progress made on SH Minerva, helped by its outstanding design. It is an inspiring journey to work on the remarkable first three vessels for the iconic Swan Hellenic and we are sure the guests who explore the world aboard them will also feel that.”
Andrea Zito, Swan Hellenic CEO, added: “We’re delighted by our partners outstanding work as we take Swan Hellenic into this exciting next chapter and look forward to meeting you on board when we head to Antarctica in November 2021. Join us to see what others don’t.”
Minerva will be able to carry up to 152 guests in 76 cabins, the majority of which will have balconies.
