Oct.2018 Seaspan’s Vancouver Drydock (Seaspan) is pleased to announce the completion of work on the Silver Explorer for Silversea Expeditions. This spectacular vessel has an ice strengthened hull and is designed to safely bring guests to some of the world’s most remote locations where she often needs to push through treacherous ice floes. The SILVER EXPLORER begins her next cruise having received significant investment to further enhance the experience of passengers aboard this ultra-luxury vessel. One of the key considerations for the vessel’s owners was ensuring that the chosen shipyard, Seaspan, had an excellent reputation and understood the care and consideration needed to work on this unique vessel.
