Scenic Eclipse II, Scenic Group’s second ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht, entered the water for the first time, marked by a ‘float out’ ceremony at the shipyard in Croatia.
The process of managing the construction of the vessel is led by MKM Yachts, a division of the Scenic Group. Scenic Eclipse II is due to launch in April 2023, with her maiden voyage sailing from Lisbon to Barcelona.
Measuring 551 feet long and 71 feet wide, the Discovery Yacht is the sister to Scenic Eclipse, which launched to much fanfare in 2019. Thanks to its innovative world-class technology and Polar 6 classification, Scenic Eclipse II is designed to meet the highest environmental standards and is structurally strengthened to navigate all seas, including the polar waters of Antarctica and the Arctic.

This latest vessel will have several enhancements following feedback from guests and crew who sailed on Scenic Eclipse. In addition to the new features in the Senses Spa, Scenic Eclipse II will have a newly designed outdoor pool and Panorama Bar on its top deck and will be equipped with a next generation custom-made submarine, Scenic Neptune II, capable of diving to a depth of up to 650 feet with eight guests.
Scenic Eclipse II is on course for completion by April 2023 and will join her sister on itineraries taking in the Mediterranean, Scotland, the Americas, the Caribbean and both Polar regions. In 2024, Scenic Eclipse II will also visit Polynesia and Indonesia and Australia, where Scenic was founded 37 years ago.
