Advanced Yacht Carrier


Advanced Yacht Carrier

More and more owners of sail and motor yachts desire a safe passage of their yacht over the Atlantic Ocean. This prompted a concept of the new advanced yacht carrier as the safest and fastest way to transport the valuable yachts. The yacht carrier, 205 metres long and 32 metres wide, is designed for a transit speed of 18 knots enabling the crossing from the Mediterranean Sea to the Caribbean in only eight days. An interesting feature of this ship is the unique float-in-float-out loading method facilitated by extensive ballasting system. The ship is provided with additional accommodations for crews of the yachts that sail along.

Imtech Marine & Offshore and Wärtsilä will be co-operating closely to build this state-of-the-art yacht carrier. Wärtsilä will deliver the generator sets and the thrusters. Its scope of delivery includes two Lips CS 3500 pulling thrusters (5 MW each), the CT225M bow thruster (1780kW), two engines 12V38B and two 6L20. In order to protect the cargo, consisting mainly of white painted yachts, against soot particles, the engines are equipped with common rail, which substantially limits the emission of dangerous substances and soot to a minimum.

Imtech will integrate the system and deliver the electric propulsion, the integrated bridge (UniMACS®3000), automation system, generators for high and low voltage, and distribution systems. The ship will be built in the Yantai Raffles shipyard in China and is scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2006.
