SeaDream Yacht Club is a private cruise line with its headquarters in Oslo, Norway. It was founded in 2002 by Larry Pimentel, an American, and his business partner Atle Brynestad, the Norwegian founder of Seabourn Cruise Line. Brynestad has since become the company's chairman and sole owner.[1]

Market position

According to USA Today, "SeaDream Yacht Club delivers a luxurious, yet low-key experience that's appealing even to those who don't usually cruise."[2] SeaDream's slogan is "it's yachting, not cruising".[3] The company's passengers are likely to be SeaDream repeaters, and to feel like members of a club: "It's a well-traveled, cultured, convivial bunch, mostly Americans and Europeans and mostly couples, age 40 and up."[2]

As of 2014, SeaDream's destinations included the Mediterranean, Caribbean, northern Europe and Asia-Pacific.[4]

Fleet

SeaDream runs a fleet of two small cruise ships, formerly operated by Sea Goddess Cruises:[1][4]

SeaDream II 1985 Wärtsilä Helsinki Shipyard 95 112 ex-Sea Goddess II, Seabourn Goddess II. Seadream52.JPG

The two ships have been said to offer "... clubby scale, [and a] sense of privacy and exclusivity ...", but with lodgings not as luxurious as those of Seabourn or Silversea vessels. Each is equipped with a watersports marina that can be lowered for activities such as swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing, and waterskiing.[4] Both ships are stocked with complimentary equipment for waterborne activities, including wave runners, glass-bottom kayaks, Laser sailboats, a banana boat, water skis, snorkeling gear and standup paddleboards. Also available are mountain bikes for use ashore.[2]
