Silversea over the Moon as it announces new ship for 2020

Silversea Cruises has signed of a contract worth approximately £280m for the construction of a new ship, provisionally named Silver Moon, to join the fleet in 2020.

The ship, to be built by Fincantieri in Italy, will be the sister ship of Silver Muse, which was delivered in April 2017 at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa.

At 40,700 gross tons and with a capacity to accommodate 596 passengers, Silver Moon will expand Silversea’s fleet to 10 ships and will add a wealth of enhancements to the on board experience, while satisfying the uncompromising requirements of the world’s most discerning travellers.

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, added: “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 proud to build a new ship for the Silversea fleet, and follow on from the success of Silver Muse.”

Since 1990 Fincantieri has built 78 cruise ships, 55 since 2002, of which 31 are currently being designed or built in the group’s yards.
