Scenic Eclipse Timeline

Scenic Eclipse is the result of years of dedication and passion to producing a market leading ocean cruiser. Built to traverse the world’s mightiest waters, our specially-commissioned yacht can access remote locations and small ports, ensuring even the toughest of ocean currents has minimal impact.
