THE helicopter landing deck of Scenic Eclipse was the perfect spot for an historic meeting last month between Andrej Plenkovic, Prime Minister of Croatia and Scenic’s Captain James Griffiths (pictured).

A private tour of the 228-passenger Discovery Yacht — its sailing currently paused in Croatia — followed a video call between the PM and Scenic Group Chairman Glen Moroney to celebrate Scenic’s commitment to build five new custom vessels in the Rijeka shipyard through its wholly owned subsidiary MKM Yachts. Scenic Eclipse II is currently under construction, with four more to follow by 2026.
