Lindblad Expeditions Holdings Inc. celebrated the float out of National Geographic Endurance in Ulstein Verft, Norway on Saturday, December 7, 2019. The first polar new build for the line, the 126-guest vessel is fully stabilized with the highest ice class (PC5 Category A) of any purpose-built passenger vessel. Key to its design is the patented X-BOW – its powerful wave-slicing action will provide an extremely smooth ride in even adverse conditions, which results in greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions for reduced environmental impact.
The vessel is scheduled for delivery in January 2020.
