40m Cat Launches Vessel for Bahamas Ferries

Monday, March 06, 2006
Rodriguez Cantieri Navali presented a new vessel dubbed V.Cat40 from its shipyard of Pietra Ligure the 40m for the Shipping Company Bahamas Ferries. Completely in aluminium, this fast catamaran - part of the City Cat series – has a crew of six people and can hold up to 320 passengers on its two decks – 222 on the main deck and 98 on the upper deck. The propulsive system consists of two engines MTU 16 V 396 TE 74L each one producing 2000 kW at 2000 rpm combined with two Rolls Royce water-jets – model Kemewa 63 SII. The cruise speed for this ship is of 29,5 knots while the maximum speed is of 32 knots. The ship stabilization is guaranteed by its intruders and by two anti-roll and anti-pitching T-Foils. The above mentioned stabilization system as well as the monitoring and control system have been entirely realized by Rodriquez Marine System, a company of the RCN group specialized in this field. The CityCat 40 has been designed for a high level comfort for a high number of passengers. The bottom shapes, in particular the bow inlets, have been conceived to reduce the seakeaping effects and minimize the vertical acceleration level in order to guarantee the maximum comfort, as well as the division of the spaces destined to passengers has been studied to maximize the visibility of the spaces available and therefore contribute to an enjoyable stay onboard.
