ULSTEIN-DESIGN POLAR CRUISE VESSEL COMPLETES SEA TRIALS

Tuesday, September 7, 2021 

Ulstein reports that the sea trial of the 'National Geographic Resolution' has been successfully carried out and the vessel has returned to Ulstein Verft for the final construction phase before its first expedition cruise in Antarctica.

The sea trials included various manoeuvres such as the 360-degree turning test and power tests, as well as emergency tests. Several companies and disciplines have been represented onboard during these days, working closely together with the teams from Ulstein and owner Lindblad.

The National Geographic Resolution is the sister vessel to the National Geographic Endurance, which was delivered in March 2020. The Resolution is planned for delivery later in 2021, and is based on the CX104 design from Ulstein Design & Solutions.

The Endurance has carried out her first expeditions in Iceland this summer. According to the Captain, Aaron Wood, the vessel has behaved very well, she was incredibly strong and powerful.

Wood said: “Our guests have loved the ship, we have received very positive feedback. She is smooth, comfortable and has very little vibration.”
