SeaDream Yacht Club currently operates the two twin yachts SeaDream I and II. The ships impress with their casual elegance, award-winning service, five-star restaurants and inspiring routes.

The Norwegian company apparently wants to take a piece of the booming expedition ship market. The 155 meter long new building SeaDream Innovation is designed for more passengers with a total of 110 luxurious outdoor suites. The cabin sizes are between 29 and 94 square meters. The ship, which is fueled with marine diesel, sets new impulses for environmentally friendly ship travel. Thanks to an innovative hybrid system and a 4MWh battery pack, the SeaDream Innovation can operate in sensitive waters for up to three hours without noise and without emissions. The waste heat generated by the four engines during ship operation is used for air conditioning, heating the pool and water treatment. In addition, the exhaust gases are cleaned and the ship is intended for shore power. The marvel is being built by the Dutch Damen Shipyards.
