PRESS RELEASE: Australis Cape Horn and Patagonia Cruises Future Takes Shape in Valdivia

Mar 8, 2016 5:25:47 PM


Construction has already started on a new Australis expedition vessel at the ASENAV shipyard in Valdivia, Chile. This new ship — which is expected to join the fleet during the final trimester of 2017 — will have a similar hull design and the same number of cabins and decks as the Stella Australis.

And it will boast all the amenities and world-class service that Australis already brings to the waters of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn.

The new 210-passenger ship will take the place of Via Australis, which is being handed over to Lindblad Expeditions for duty in the Galapagos at the end of the current season. As the new vessel takes shape in Valdivia, Stella Australis will operate solo in the southern seas during the 2016/2017 season.


Sincerely yours,


Pedro del Río

Australis CEO
