Seabourn will name its second purpose-built expedition ship the Seabourn Pursuit when it debuts in 2023.  

Construction for the Seabourn Pursuit began last fall, and the vessel is slated for delivery in February 2023. Its sister ship, the Seabourn Venture, is scheduled for delivery in March.

 "The name Seabourn Pursuit is truly fitting for a ship envisioned and designed to take expedition travelers into those places where they can see vast landscapes, diverse wildlife and remote regions of the world that may have been on their bucket list for years," said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn, in a statement. 

Once delivered, the Pursuit will head north for its first season with an inaugural "Fire and Ice" voyage scheduled for April 4, 2023, departing roundtrip from Reykjavik, Iceland, and visiting the coasts of Greenland and Iceland. 

The ship will continue onward by exploring the waters and landscapes of Greenland, Iceland and Norway throughout the spring and early summer. In August 2023 it will embark on a Northwest Passage sailing from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, to Nome, Alaska. Itineraries for the Seabourn Pursuit inaugural season are set to open for sale in mid-December. 

Both the Pursuit and the Venture are designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standard and each will carry two custom-built submarines, 24 Zodiacs, kayaks and a 26-person expert expedition team whose role is to engage guests throughout each voyage.
