Recently Damen Shipyards Gorinchem (Netherlands) received an order for a DFF 4212 for Seaspovill in South Korea. As Damen has this type of ferry on stock the vessel has a short delivery time. The vessel’s hull was already built by Afai Southern Shipyard Guangzhou (China) and thereafter it was transported to Damen Shipyards in Singapore.

The DFF 4212 has an aluminium hull and superstructure with a length overall of 138.4 ft and beam of 38 ft. The high-speed passenger catamaran is designed and built to comply with the international code of safety for High Speed Craft, 2000 HSC Code. The vessel will be classed by Bureau Veritas.

The Passenger accommodation can carry 450 persons in total, which means 300 on main deck and 150 on the upper deck. These spaces are air-conditioned with temperature control and on demand fresh air supply. On main deck there is a toilet area with six toilets and 1 disabled toilet, which is also accessible for wheelchairs.

For onboard entertainment thirty inches TV Screens and DVD players are provided. On the main deck there is a kiosk for hot and cold servings. Storage spaces for luggage and light cargo are provided on main deck aft.

The ferry has a spacious wheelhouse with comfortable seats for a three crew operation, a spacious engine room and an efficient lay out of the pump room. The vessel is powered by four MTU main engines (16V2000 M72) and has a maximum speed @ full load of 38.5 knots.
