Video shows scenic Eclipse II floating out in Croatia

The Scenic Group has released a video of its second ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht entering the water for the first time

Scenic Eclipse II has floated out in Croatia, ahead of its maiden voyage from Lisbon to Barcelona in April 2023. 

The vessel is the Scenic Group’s second ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht, and it entered the water for the first time at the 3.Maj shipyard in Croatia. 

Watch a video of the float out:

The 168 metres long and 21.5 metres wide Discovery Yacht is the sister to Scenic Eclipse which launched in 2019. Scenic Eclipse II has a raft of eco-credentials and is structurally strengthened to navigate all seas, including the polar waters of Antarctica and the Arctic.  

Scenic Eclipse II will have several enhancements following feedback from guests and crew who sailed on Scenic Eclipse. In addition to the new features in the Senses Spa, Scenic Eclipse II will have a newly designed outdoor pool and Panorama Bar on its top deck. Like Scenic Eclipse it will boast a submarine, the “next generation” Scenic Neptune II, which can dive down to a depth of up to 200 metres. 

Glen Moroney, chairman and founder of Scenic Group commented: “This is a big and important moment for all of us at Scenic. Scenic Eclipse II represents an improved vision of our pioneering approach in the world of ultra-luxury cruising. We are grateful to be able to build the most technologically advanced discovery passenger ships in the world and to cooperate with shipyards with a long, proud tradition of shipbuilding.”

Scenic Eclipse II will join Scenic Eclipse sailing itineraries in the Mediterranean, Scotland, the Americas, the Caribbean and both Polar regions. In 2024, Scenic Eclipse II will also visit Polynesia and Indonesia and Australia, where Scenic was founded 37 years ago.

The process of managing the construction of the vessel is led by MKM Yachts, a division of the Scenic Group.
