I He refurbished 1,400-passenger, Pielstick-powered Eurocruiser Sally Albatross, recently delivered by
Largest Cruise Liner
Ever Built At Finnyards
Delivered To Sally Line
The "reborn" 525-foot-long Sally
Albatross, the largest cruise liner ever built at Finnyards Ltd., the
Finnish shipbuilder, was recently delivered to Finnish owner Oy Sally
Line Ab of Helsinki.
Through a unique approach, the submerged part of the previous Sally
Albatross, including her main en- gines and propellers, was used in constructing the new vessel. This formed the foundation for a com- pletely new, streamlined ship, and cut production time to 20 months.
Following ceremonies at the
Rauma, Finland, shipyard, the Sally
Albatross departed on her maiden cruise to her homeport of Mariehamn in the Aland Islands, where she then sailed to Helsinki. The Sally Alba- tross will normally operate in the
Baltic Sea, offering 24-hour cruise service. During the summer, the vessel will sail to the island of Visby and to St. Petersburg.
The 10-deck, six passenger deck vessel has a beam of 83 feet, draft of 18 feet and gross tonnage of 25,000.
With 550 cabins, most of which have an ocean view, the Sally Albatross has a passenger capacity of 1,400.
New cabins were provided by Parma
Marine. The "Eurocruiser" has pub- lic areas totaling about 5,400 square meters (about 58,104 square feet), including three restaurants, a 600- seat show lounge, a night club, a large 450-seat conference space, ca- sino, health and fitness center, sauna, and hospital.
Built to Det norske Veritas class, the Finnish-flag, twin-screw ship has a specially strengthened steel hull for ice navigation. She is propelled to a cruising speed of 21 knots by four Pielstick 12 PC2.5V diesel en- gines and controllable-pitch propellers. Total output of her main engines is 19,120 kw (25,640 hp).
Electrical power is supplied by three
Wartsila Vasa 6R32 diesel genera- tors, with a total output of 6.2 mw.
Interior work on the vessel was supplied by Danish company A/S
Henning Frokjaer and Finnish com- panies Loipart Oy, Merima Oy, and
Oy Shippax Ltd. New galleys, pan- tries and bars were supplied by
Electrolux Marine of Sweden. HVAC was supplied by Sweden's Flakt
Marine and new passenger and ser- vice lifts were installed from
MacGregor-Navire (Denmark) A/S.
Finnmast Oy and Elomarine Ltd. provided construction services.
The Swedish Olympiabaten foundation has chartered the Sally
Albatross to provide a base for its export promotion project at the
Barcelona Olympics this summer.
