Seattle, Wash., headquartered Quark Expeditions has released new renderings of its 200 passenger polar expedition ship, Ultramarine, which will set sail in the Antarctic 2020/21 season.
Under construction at Croatia’s Brodosplit shipyard, the 128 meter vessel is being built to a design by Sembcorp Marine’s Bergen, Norway, headquartered subsidiary LMG Marin.
The new renderings show the vessel’s livery will be somewhat more distinctive than previously envisioned, featuring Quark Expeditions’ distinctive yellow “Q” logo spanning the full height of the ship, reflecting Quark’s mission to go beyond the predictable.
“We are proud and excited to see the vision behind Ultramarine come to life,” says Andrew White, president of Quark Expeditions. “From the bold exterior to the comfortable, contemporary interior, our internal and external teams have come together to create a truly unique ship that will present unprecedented possibilities for our guests. This one-of-a-kind ship will provide passengers from across the globe an ultra-immersive, ultra-inspiring, ultra-exciting polar experience second to none.”
