Last days we have been testing the XXL bathing platforms we have developed for the Ponant Explorers for the first time. These first test results are more than satisfying. Since this is our very first large platform of this XXL size, we anticipated to make some modifications in order to make the platform even better. For the next couple of weeks we will make the improvements before we will start the final tests and assembly.
After the final assembly and after the client acceptance in October we plan to transport the huge bathing platforms to the Norwegian shipyard VARD in November. In Norway VARD is building four 5 star cruise vessels for Ponant at the moment.
The ships are a new generation of ships specially designed for expeditions. They are designed to gain access to the most inaccessible locations and to go further, where others do not go. Reliability and maximum security are very important for the Explorers Cruisers. One of the new developments is a hydraulic aft platform in order to provide:
- Easier boarding than on any other cruise ship
- Easier Zodiac embarkation and disembarkation for expeditions
- Easier access to the sea for swimming and practicing various water sports such as kayaking or paddle-boarding
The design of the Seascape XXL is twice the size of the original design. Other specifications are:
- SWL of 4 tons
- 11 self-inclining steps
- Dimensions: 5x6m (LxW)
- Including powerpacks
- Including closing top hatches
High quality, stability, aesthetics and functional design are keywords embraced in the Hydromar Seascape bathing platforms.
