The order will bring the number of Setra vehicles in the Shearings Group to 135 – making it the UK’s largest fleet and just over half of Shearings’ total fleet.
Announcing the deal, Shearings chief executive Denis Wormwell, said: “Since we began investing in new Setra coaches in 2009 our customer satisfaction levels have been exceptional.
“Setra are renowned for their quality, reliability and green credentials, making them the perfect partner to enable us to provide enjoyable travel experiences for our customers as we continue to expand our coach offering into 2011.
“What’s more, the introduction of Setra coaches to our fleet has reduced our passengers’ carbon footprint significantly, thanks to the improved fuel economy of their coaches.”
The announcement follows the delivery of 45 coaches in April this year and 45 coaches in 2009.
The order, due for delivery in April 2011, will feature ten Grand Tourer 416 GTHDs with 48 seats and twenty 416 GTHDs with 52 seats for Shearings Holidays, plus fifteen 415 GTHDs with 48 seats for National Holidays.
