Aker Yards Delivers Fast Day Ferry

February 27, 2008

Aker Yards delivered a superspeed day ferry for Color Line Transport AS. The vessel built at the Rauma yard is the first in the series of two. The second will be delivered next summer. The contract for two Fast Passenger Day Ferries worth approx. $370.5m was signed by Aker Yards and Color Line on December 15, 2005.

Speed and efficiency were the key requirements when the new concept was designed. The operational cruising speed will be 27 knots, and the passage time from Kristiansand / Larvik in Norway to Hirtshals in Denmark will be from 3 to 4 hours. The ca. 211 m long and 26 m wide vessel has 2,000 lane metres of vehicle space and takes 1,900 passengers. There are no passenger cabins in the day ferry.
