Monday, May 09, 2005
Damen Shipyards Gorinchem won a contract to build a 41-m aluminium monohull fast ferry for the Danish operator, Christiansøfarten A/S, based on the island of Bornholm.

The new ferry will service routes between the Danish islands of Bornholm and Christiansø, as well as on the town of Simrishamn in Sweden. The owner, Christiansøfarten currently services these three routes with conventional coastal ferries. The new vessel will be delivered in March 2006, in time for the beginning of the European summer tourist season, and will be built at Damen Shipyards Singapore.

Seating for 245 is arranged inside on the main deck in air-conditioned comfort with heating and cooling. Another 66 seats are fitted externally on the upper deck. Kiosk, toilets and luggage facilities are fitted on the main deck.

The vessel will be powered by three Caterpillar C32 diesel engines driving three fixed pitch propellers via ZF3050 gearboxes. Speed will be 25 knots at 1,000 kW per engine.

To be built under the IMO HSC 2000 Category A rules, the vessel will be classed by Bureau Veritas and certified by the Danish Maritime Authority.
