The 264-guest Seabourn Pursuit is a PC6 Polar Class vessel, meaning it can explore some of the most remote ice-bound regions. It offers guests a “yacht like” small ship experience with all-suite accommodation and no fewer than eight dining venues.

What’s more, Seabourn Pursuit will have an 24-person expedition team of scientists, scholars and naturalists ready to guide and enlighten guests throughout each voyage. There is also a fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks, as well as submersibles for exploring the world below the waves.

Seabourn Pursuit will enter service on 12 August 2023 sailing five Mediterranean voyages. The ship will then cross the Atlantic to the Americas for a short season before embarking on its inaugural Antarctic season. Seabourn Pursuit will join sister ship Seabourn Venture exploring the worlds remote regions.
