To be named SILVER MOON, the new ship will be a sister to SILVER MUSE (delivered in April) and at 40,700 gt she will have a capacity to accommodate 596 guests.
When delivered in 2020, SILVER MOON will expand Silversea’s fleet to ten ships.
Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, Chairman of Silversea, commented: “Based on the high praise SILVER MUSE has earned with our guests, we are eager to build on our flagship's success and move forward with a sister ship, which will bring us closer to fulfilling my father's dream of a 12-ship fleet. We pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding luxury cruise experience, and are delighted to partner once again with expert luxury shipbuilder Fincantieri as we continue to grow and evolve our fleet.”
Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, stated: “We have a trusted relationship with Silversea which was born many years ago and is renewed today thanks to this important order. We are very glad to build a new ship for this fleet, moreover based on a successful project like the one of SILVER MUSE. ” Bono concluded: “The ultra-luxury segment confirms to be among those embodying orders even after the peak of the past few years, and Fincantieri has again proved to be the undisputed shipbuilding group in this such prestigious market niche.”
