National Geographic Endurance successfully completed its first sea trials
Lindblad's new National Geographic Endurance has successfully completed her first sea trials in Storfjorden, which is the entrance of Geirangerfjord.
National Geographic Endurance is back in the shipyard currently undergoing final outfitting before delivery set in March.
It features the distinctive X-Bow, a patented Ulstein design, for a smoother ride and better seakeeping, which should result in greater fuel efficiency/reduced emissions.
National Geographic Endurance has returned to Ulstein Verft for final outfitting prior to scheduled delivery in March.
The first of two new polar vessels for the line, the 126-guest National Geographic Endurance is fully stabilized with the highest ice class (PC5 Category A) of any purpose-built passenger vessel and features the distinctive X-Bow which will afford the smoothest, most comfortable ride imaginable, in all sea behavior, resulting in greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions for reduced environmental impact.
