The five-star river cruise ship “MS Scenic Emerald” was built for the MS Scenic Emerald AG, Basle, Switzerland in the shipyard in Tangermünde. The construction period was from July 2007 to July 2008 and the transfer from the Elbe to the Rhine was on 25.07.2008.

When building the ship we had to take into account the shipyard facilities and the dimensions of the slipway (max 86m length). For this reason the ship was built in 2 sections which were launched separately. These floating sections were then welded together using special equipment. The “MS Scenic Emerald” is in service on the Rhine, and Danube.
