Atle Brynestad bestiller cruiseskip fra Damen

SeaDream Yacht Club, som er grunnlagt og eies av den norske forretningsmannen Atle Brynestad, introduserer Global Yachting som et nytt segment i selskapet og bygger et nytt luksusskip. Damen Shipyards har fått oppdraget og skipet har allerede fått navnet SeaDream Innovation.

Det nye luksusfartøyet skal være ferdig fra verftet i september 2021. Cruiserederiet kaller nybygget en ny epoke og introduserer begrepet Global Yachting. Allerede i det første driftsåret vil skipet seile til alle syv kontinenter og besøke over 200 havner i 49 land. Gjestene vil utforske verdens fjerneste og unike destinasjoner, blant annet Svalbard, Nordvestpassasjen, Antarktis, norske fjorder, Japan, New Zealand, Fijiøyene og Great Barrier Reef.

En gammel drøm
– Dette prosjektet har vært en drøm for meg i mange år, sier Atle Brynestad, eier, styreformann og CEO for SeaDream i en melding fra selskapet. Det har vært et arbeid med kjærlighet å skulle være med på å utforme og skape dette fartøyet, fra interiøret og fasilitetene til rutene den skal seile i den første tiden, fortsetter han.

Med bare 110 eksklusive suiter med havsutsikt, vil SeaDream Innovation tilby en intim atmosfære om bord. Innovasjon er kombinert med elegant komfort, og alle rom og fasiliteter er designet for å heve gjestopplevelsen på sjøen, inkludert tre marinaer og uteservering.

Damen fikk jobben
- Vi valgte Damen Shipyards på grunn av deres gode rykte og anerkjente historie som innovatører innen skipsbygging, sier Atle Brynestad. Damen Shipyards forsto vår visjon fra begynnelsen. Både Damen og SeaDream er familieeide bedrifter, noe som gjør Damen til en perfekt langsiktig partner for dette visjonære prosjektet. Vi gleder oss til å samarbeide tett med Damen-teamet for å gjøre denne drømmen til virkelighet, legger han til.

Nybygget vil bli på 15 600 bruttotonn og 155 meter langt. Om bord vil SeaDream tilby en ekte yachting-livsstil med høyt servicenivå, 5-stjerners spisesteder, luksuriøs innkvartering, sjenerøse utendørsområder og inspirerende reiseruter.

Rederiets tredje skip
Det var i 2001 Brynestad introduserte kresne reisende til SeaDream-opplevelsen, hvor uformell eleganse og intime havner har vært kjennetegnet. Før SeaDream ble den norske gründeren allerede anerkjent som leder i bransjen da han som eneste eier og grunnlegger av Seabourn Cruise Line bygde Seabourn Pride i 1988, etterfulgt av ytterligere to luksuriøse cruiseskip.

SeaDream Yacht Club disponerer nå to fartøy, SeaDream1 og SeaDream2 som begge går i Middelhavet i sommerhalvåret i Caribbean i vinterhalvåret. Rederiet har hovedkontor i Miami i Florida og norgeskontor på Billingstad i Asker

SeaDream Innovation to Get Battery Pack and 'Green' Features

The SeaDream Innovation will be equipped with a large battery pack of approximately 4 MWh, which enables sailing silently and without emissions for up to three hours with no disturbance to surrounding wildlife, the company said.

SeaDream has received a grant for $1.8 million from Enova, an organization owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment that is responsible for the promotion of environmentally friendly production and consumption of energy.

We are extremely grateful that Enova supports our environmental efforts. Without this solid support from Enova, this would not have been possible,” said Atle Brynestad, owner of SeaDream. “We are proud to contribute to the cruise industry by taking the lead in developing more environmentally friendly vessels that will also sail with the Norwegian flag. We are committed to having a positive impact on the environment, our employees, our guests, our suppliers and the places we visit. In the future, we all need to make a positive contribution to our environment and the local communities we visit, so guests can continue experiencing different local communities and enjoying the fantastic nature while using local services and making local purchases where possible.”

“Batteries have entered the maritime sector, but until now, there has been little experience to show in practice, especially in cruise ships,” said Enova's CEO Nils Kristian Nakstad. “When it comes to electricity production of surplus heat, land-based industry has shown what is possible, but at sea, such solutions are currently used very little. We depend on more people developing and using these technologies the world needs.”

The hybrid system will reduce local emissions by supporting the diesel generators in “peak shaving mode”, reducing fuel consumption. The yacht will be able to sail to sensitive areas such as the Norwegian fjords and along the ice edge toward the North Pole because of this system. The batteries also bring an added degree of safety, acting as “spinning reserve,” which in the event of a motor shutdown switches instantaneously to the use of batteries without loss of power, the company said, in a press release.

SeaDream Innovation will also install an "Organic Rankine Cycle" machine that takes waste heat from the engines and converts it to electricity. This can produce up to 150 kW of electrical power, which would otherwise have been wasted energy, and instead reduces fuel consumption and results in lower emissions.

Where available by port, SeaDream Innovation can also be plugged into shoreside electrical grids around the world by using a multi-voltage shore connection system reducing local pollution anywhere in the world.

The mega-yacht has four modern diesel engines and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system for reducing nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions to the most stringent IMO rules with engines rated to meet the latest and most stringent MARPOL Tier III limits. SeaDream Innovation will be equipped with two podded propulsors providing the highest efficiency and maneuverability. Additionally, SeaDream Innovation will have the high ice class that is designated by PC6.

Noen som kjenner til bakgrunnen for kanselleringen? Litt overraskende at det plutselig er kansellert sånn uten videre..

Pressemelding fra SeaDream Yacht Club

Contract for new SeaDream ship terminated

SeaDream Yacht Club and Damen have in good faith and with mutual understanding decided not to proceed with the building of a new ship for SeaDream. Both parties are open to potential future projects and collaboration. The new ship, SeaDream Innovation, was scheduled to be delivered in September of 2021.

“The response from our past guests and the market in general has been overwhelming, despite the ship not being scheduled for delivery for almost two years,” said Andreas Brynestad, Executive Vice President. “Since the ship will not be delivered, all booked guests will be contacted and issued full refunds in the coming days.”

SeaDream is actively pursuing other newbuild opportunities. Atle Brynestad, SeaDream Owner and Chairman, said, “The company has been debt free for several years and has the equity needed to expand the fleet. We hope to announce a new ship in 2020.”

The existing fleet of two ships, SeaDream I and II, continue performing well, with the company seeing record revenue years. Current plans of refurbishing the suites on SeaDream I and II will proceed as previously announced and planned – starting with SeaDream II in spring 2020.
