Emerald Waterways to build three new ships

News comes as the line launches its two newest ships
Emerald Waterways is in talks to build three more ships, due for delivery in January 2017. The news comes as the line launches its two newest ships, Emerald Sun and Emerald Dawn.
Speaking at the ceremony, Glen Moroney announced that Emerald was “in negotiations to build three new ships,” which he said would “sail on new rivers that the line doesn’t currently sail on”.
Speaking after the ceremony, Emerald Waterways’ marketing manager David Winterton confirmed that the new ships would be identical sister ships to the line’s current 172-passenger vessels and would include four grades of cabins.
The move would bring the number of ships in the Emerald fleet to eight, with another vessel, Emerald Belle, set for delivery next year.
Winterton said that the line’s growth had been significant, particularly as it is still a newcomer to the market: “We launched exactly two years ago last week, the company is doing brilliantly,” he said. “We want to continue growing our business through the trade. […] I would urge any agents that sell river cruise, or want to, to get in touch.”
