Shearings Holidays, the award-winning specialist operator of escorted tours, announced that it has added 29 brand new Mercedes Tourismo Euro VI coaches to its existing fleet.
22 out of the 29 new coaches are already in service, with the rest expected to be phased into the fleet over the coming weeks. The new Tourismos are part of Shearings Leisure Group’s 2017 order for 43 new vehicles, 29 three axle Tourismo M 16 RHD for the core Shearings fleet and 13 Tourismo 14 RHD for National Holidays.
The latest livery features an array of luxury features, such as full air-conditioning, arm and foot rests and dual 19” monitors paired with Bosch Professional Line audio/visual systems. Power to all coaches of the new Tourismos is delivered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 470 engine.
The safety specification on the coaches includes an advanced electronic braking system, lane departure warning system and an electronic stability control programme.
The announcement comes on the back of further growth in customer volumes, which earlier saw the company expand its UK & European holiday programme and add a range of new destinations.
Richard Calvert, CEO of Shearings Leisure Group, commented: “We are delighted to welcome the new vehicles to the fleet. This represents a major investment for us and is a testament to our commitment as a business to provide customers with the ultimate comfort and safety while on tour.
“The Euro 6 Tourismo coaches are very popular with our customers and the latest interiors will add even more luxury to their overall experience.”
The latest additions mean that Shearings now have the most modern and luxurious fleet of coaches in the UK industry.
The new coaches provide maximum comfort with stylish upholstery, generous legroom, individual overhead service controls and arm and footrests.
