Rodriquez Cantieri Navali Delivers Catamaran

Tuesday, July 25, 2006
On July 7, Rodriquez Cantieri Navali do Brasil delivered the first and, after a week, launched the second of seven 52 m Double Ended CityCats under construction in Niteroi near Rio De Janeiro. The Gavea I is the fourth vessel to be completed by Rodriquez’s Brazilian shipyard after the three 28-m catamarans delivered in 2005. Entirely built of aluminum, the vessel has a length of 52 m and a beam of 14.2 m It is able to transport 1,300 passengers, 900 of whom seated, for a total payload of 125 tons, with a light displacement of 290 tons. The Citycat 52 DE is a double-ended vessel with a double bridge in order to optimize the time spent at the quayside and two MTU 16V 2000 M70 engines rated at 1050 kW each, placed between the two hulls on the boat’s longitudinal axis, each coupled to an azimuth propeller wholly designed by Rodriquez Marine System. This system allows the vessel to reach a service speed of 18 knots with a fuel consumption of 250 liters per hour for each engine. The Gavea I will be used to link Rio de Janeiro to the residential and industrial city of Niterói, a route used by over 80,000 passengers every day.
