Before the successful launch of Ultramarine last weekend, we asked Malcolm Ellis, our Senior Vice-President of Operations, why this stage of a ship build is so critical. 🤔⁠⠀ Here's what he said: “The launch of any ship is complex and uncontrolled. The total time involved from trigger release until the vessel is stopped in the water is about one minute. Yet, the potential for damage in that time period is greater than at any time during the ship’s many years of service. The stress placed on a vessel during launch is probably the highest it will experience in its lifetime. No rehearsal is possible.”⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We'll be sharing the launch video soon! Until then, learn more about this ship, with the link in bio! 👆⁠⠀ #TravelwithQuark #Ultramarine #ExpeditionShip
