Shipyard “Lotos” to lay passenger cruise ship “Zolotoye Koltso”

On January 17th 2018 new PCS 180 passenger cruise ship “Zolotoye Koltso” ordered by “Goznak-leasing” CJSC for OOO “Volgaservice” will be laid at “Shipbuilding yard “Lotos” (incorporated in United Shipbuilding Corporation).

Being one of the biggest enterprises in the Southern Federal District and the first resident of the special economic zone, “Lotos” shipyard will build two cruise paddle wheelers of PCS 180 “Golden Ring” project for OOO “Gama” within the subsidized leasing program for passenger vessels.

A shallow draft of 1,2 m and overall height of 8,6 m of the “Golden Ring” passenger ships ensure a safe passage down/up shallow rivers, under bridges and approaching to a non-equipped shore, which allows expanding the river cruise geography not only in the European part of the country, but also in Siberia and Far East.

The keel-laying ceremony will be attended by Alexey Rakhmanov, a Head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation; Alexander Zhilkin, a Governor of the Astrakhan Region; representatives of relevant ministries, agencies and authorities of the Astrakhan region and business figures.
