Vigo has said goodbye to Evrima, the first cruise ship built in Spain that leaves Barreras and will move to Cantabria to be painted in dry dock (Astander). The 190-meter-long ultra-luxury vessel set sail from the Galician port pulled by the high-altitude tugboat ‘VB Hispania’, of the Boluda Towage fleet, which is in charge of transporting it to the port of Santander.
The painting work will be carried out in Cantabria, which will last for several weeks, after which she will return to Vigo for the final finish and the official sea trials prior to delivery to the owner, Ritz-Carlton.
The ‘Evrima’ was hired four years ago for 250 million euros -she is the most expensive civil ship built in Spain-, a figure that currently exceeds 300 million for an extra cost of 80 million, according to ‘Atlántico.net’ .
The Astander dry dock is already waiting for ‘Evrima’, where it is foreseeable that part of the auxiliary companies involved in the work will come to continue the work on board the ultra-premium cruise ship.
