Azamara Club Cruises’ Azamara Pursuit will undergo a complete interior refurbishment at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The refit will be the first time a cruise ship owner has awarded complete project management responsibility to an individual organisation.
“We are delighted to welcome Azamara Pursuit safely to Belfast following her two-week journey from The Bahamas,” said 3CEO of MJM Group, Gary Annett.
“Watching her berth at Harland and Wolff is the fulfilment of long-held ambition of MJM Group founder and chair Brian McConville to bring a project of this scale to Belfast.
This truly is historic not just for MJM Group, but also for the marine industry and there is a real sense that the eyes of the marine world are firmly on us and on Northern Ireland.”
Azamara Pursuit will be docked in Belfast for several months while the full refit is carried out and will be the largest project of its kind to take place at a UK shipyard for many years.
“We are delighted to be working with MJM Group in providing the berthing, support and other services for this fantastic project,” stated director of business development and improvement at Harland and Wolff, Jonathon Guest.
At the end of July this year, Azamara Pursuit will sail to Southampton to prepare for her maiden voyage to Norway on August 1st.
“With the christening taking place in Southampton, and the maiden voyage departing from Southampton too, the UK is playing a key part in the ship’s story and so we’re thrilled that the refit is taking place at Harland and Wolff,” said managing director of Azamara Club Cruises, UK and Ireland, Richard Twynam.
