The world is slowly returning to normal, so Brodosplit's elegant cruiser 'Monet' owned by Brodosplit-Ship Management returned to the fleet of the reputable British company Noble Caledonia. With a two-year delay, after entering the fleet of ships of one of the most respected European passenger operators, the coronavirus pandemic and the ban on navigation were prevented.
"Welcome to Noble Caledonia, Captain," said Mike Deegan, director of the fleet of ships, handing the company flag to Monet Captain, Joseph Padden. The ship successfully passed the inspection before the start of the cruise, so I am delighted to be able to award you the flag of our company. I wish you safe sailing and a calm sea. Good luck onboarding the first guests in a few weeks, said Deegan.
Noble Caledonia is the world's leading operator for small boat cruises. If you are one of those who are attracted to large tourist boats that host thousands of passengers then of course this is not the boat for you. But if you prefer an informal and warm atmosphere more like the atmosphere of a private yacht combined with a travel program dedicated to discovery and relaxation, you don’t have to look any further.
The Monet is decorated with a ‘Gatsby’ interior and decks with plenty of seating space to read and relax. It is named after the French Impressionist painter Oscar-Claude Monet, whose faithful reproductions filled all public spaces and passenger cabins. The library offers a range of books and magazines, and the open-air bar & lounge changes into a comfortable place to relax and dance.
It is 68 meters long and has main Caterpillar powertrains with a total power of 1000 kW that allows it a speed of 12 knots. The 30 cabins can accommodate 60 passengers cared for by 27 crew members. All cabins are air-conditioned, and have a minibar, telephone, LED TV, and Wi-Fi Internet.
