The catamaran is equipped with twin pod type propulsors with two variable pitch propellers with 360° rotation to maximize maneuverability and at the same time reach a speed of 18 knots, suitable for the three mile route. The catamaran is scheduled for delivery in July. Rodriquez Cantieri Navali do Brasil was founded in Rio de Janeiro by Rodriquez Cantieri Navali after the signing of a contract for the construction of ten aluminum catamarans with Barcas SA.
