In total, the Russian government will allocate 15 billion rubles for seven cruise ships construction.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Three cruise ships of the Karelia project will be built at the Krasnoye Sormovo plant in Nizhny Novgorod on the order of the Vodohod company with the support of the Russian government.

“Civil ships construction will help renew the country’s flotilla and increase the passenger traffic volume. This requires serious government support. The government has allocated 15 billion rubles to launch the seven civilian ships construction. Part of this amount will be used to finance three cruise ships of the Karelia project”, explained Russian Federation deputy prime minister – Industry and Trade minister Denis Manturov.

The project belongs to the Vympel design bureau. All vessels have a river-sea class and will continue to be used on inland waterways. Motor ships will be built according to the optimized PV300 project, which was used for the series’ flagship, the Mustai Karim liner.

Unlike the lead ship, Karelia is designed for 180 passengers and will match the world’s best cruise ships in terms of comfort for tourists on board. Motor ships of this type will also be able to navigate shallow rivers, which expands their application scope. It is planned that the first ship will begin navigation in 2025, the second and third – in 2026.

“The Nizhny Novgorod shipyard is fully prepared for the cruise ships new series construction. We have been discussing the details of this project with the customer since the beginning of the year. I am sure that our close cooperation will continue during the cruise liners construction on the plant slipway”, said Mikhail Pershin, the Krasnoye Sormovo plant’s general director.

Let us add that the Vodohod company became the winner of the Rosmorrechflot’s competition following the last year results in the Shipping Company Engaged in River Transportation of Passengers (Cruise) category.
