Largest Ferries Built to LR Class


The two largest cruiseferries in the world will be built to LR class. Ordered by P&O North Sea Ferries from the Italian yard Fincantieri, the cruiseferries will each have a gross tonnage of 60,600 and be able to carry 1,360 passengers and 136 crew. The first ship will be delivered in April 2001 and the second in December 2001.
Replacing four other ships, the cruiseferries will operate between Rotterdam and Hull and have a service speed of 22 knots, enabling them to reduce the normal journey time by two and half-hours. The ferries will have a specially designed deck for 250 cars and the three cargo decks a capacity of 3,400 running meters. In total each cruiseferry will be capable of carrying approximately 400 freight units. Plan approval for the two new ferries, the largest and among the fastest in the world, will be carried out at LR's Trieste office. Lloyd's Register classes almost half of the world's cruise ships currently in service and LR class is specified for 50 per cent of the tonnage under construction or on order.
