A Mayer Brown team advised CCB Financial Leasing Corporation Limited (CCB Leasing), a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Construction Bank, on the recent lease financing and delivery of the newly-built cruise ship, Viking Mars, which was delivered in May 2022 at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy. 

Viking Mars, which can accommodate 930 passengers, is the most recent Viking Ocean Cruises' vessel financed by CCB Leasing, joining its sister-ship "Viking Jupiter" and the expedition vessel "Viking Octantis" for which Mayer Brown also acted for CCB Leasing.

The team was led by Head of Ship Finance & Maritime Transactions partner Conor Warde and included associates Kathy Wong and Co Co Mak (all Hong Kong).
