Derecktor's Patricia Olivia II

Thursday, September 02, 1999
Derecktor Shipyards has launched a new high-speed 149.6 ft. catamaran passenger ferry for the Argentinean Company, Buquebus. Capable of operating speeds in excess of 52 knots, when fully loaded, this new vessel becomes the fastest passenger ferry of its class in the world. Derecktor engineers work with the ferry operator, helping evaluate which vessel design best suits its application, based on passenger capacity, speed, length of route, prevailing sea conditions and operating cost. Several arrangement and propulsion options allow maximum customization of the vessel for its intended use. Derecktor ferries can be built to meet any classification society requirements and all applicable government regulations Designed by Nigel Gee and Associates and styled by Pininfarina, this catamaran has an interior by Julio Cesar Ortega. This vessel is powered by twin Detroit Diesel AlliedSignal TF80 turbines coupled with Cincinnati MA107 gearboxes and MJP 950 waterjets. Choice of the TF100 power pack option would increase the operating speed to more than 61 knots.
