I He refurbished 1,400-passenger, Pielstick-powered Eurocruiser Sally Albatross, recently delivered by

Finnyards Ltd.

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.
