Blount Delivere 155-F: Ferry Cayo Norte

Blount Industries has delivered the MAT Cayo Norte to the Puerto Rico Ports Authority in San Juan. The vessel, which was completed July 27, was scheduled to arrive in San Juan in early August.

The 156-ft. (47.5-m) oceangoing ferry can accommodate eight full-size trailers. Its air-conditioned passenger space will seat 125, plus four disabled passengers on runs between Fajardo and the islands of Vieques and Culebra. The vessel also meets ADA compliance for the disabled. Cayo Norte is a slightly larger ship, but still similar to the 155-ft. (47.2-m) delivery WW Santa Maria, completed in 1990.

Cayo Norte is fitted with Twin Disc gears and an Ellis four-blade propeller. She has a Furuno radar, an Icom radio and a Ritchie compass. The vessel is the 291st vessel built at the Blount Shipyard in Warren, R.I., and the 19th ferry built by Blount for the Puerto Rico Ports Authority over a 40-year period.
