Fiberglass Catamaran From China

Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Guanzhou Min Hua Yacht Manufacture Ltd. delivered the fourth in a series of high speed catamaran passenger vessels to Elison, an operator in the far south of Guangdong province. The catamaran will service the two islands of Shangchuan Dao and Xiachuan Dao, which are busy terminals on an otherwise empty stretch of coastline. The islands lie about 10 miles off shore and are popular holiday destinations for domestic tourists. At 23.8 x 6 x 2.1 m the catamarans are among the larger vessels on the run to the islands. The vessels carry 130 passengers in a single main deck cabin with a pilothouse on the upper deck. Propulsion power is a pair of 550 hp Cummins KTA19 M2 engines turning .700x.952-m 3-blad propellers through 2.5:1 reduction Hanzhou J400 gear boxes. This combination gives the boat a 24-knot speed at sea.
