ALMACO announced that it has been contracted to build the catering areas onboard the first newbuild ship for Saga Cruises at Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. This modern and elegant vessel is expected to be delivered in summer of 2019, with the option to order a second with expected delivery in 2021.
ALMACO’s scope of work includes the complete galley and pantry equipment and visual turnkey installation. Given the first class level of service expected on board Saga Cruises and the intimate small-ship feel of the vessels, the galley was specifically designed to provide flexible dining and to meet guests every requirement.
ALMACO Group and Saga Cruises starting working together at the pre-contractual stage when ALMACO assisted with the design and equipment selection for the main galley, crew galley, pantries, counters and refrigeration equipment for the catering areas to suit Saga’s specific needs in the most cost-efficient manner.
“It is an honor to be part of this first newbuild vessel for Saga Cruises and that Meyer Werft continues to trust ALMACO’s quality and reliability,” says Erik Schobesberger, ALMACO Group’s Vice President of Newbuilding Sales for the Marine Division. He added, “ALMACO understands the need for owners to optimize the design at the earliest stages of the process and by working side by side with Meyer Werft and Saga, we were able to deliver a customized and efficient design and next will build the catering areas suited for Saga Cruises’ discerning guests.”
