Albatros Expeditions’ second Ulstein X-Bow hulled ship, Ocean Albatros, has successfully completed sea trials ahead of its service entry, flagged for May 2023.
The Ulstein shipyard reported that the Polar Class vessel was put through its paces during some demanding conditions.
“The terrible weather conditions, which included more than 20m/s storm and heavy fog, tried to put obstacles in the way for the first part of the sea trials for Ocean Albatros. However, SunStone Ships’ latest expedition cruise vessel made a great performance,” Ulstein reported.
