New Fast Ferry


Derecktor Shipyards of Mamaroneck (NY, USA) signed a contract for the construction of a 35-meter aluminum high-speed passenger catamaran. This vessel is the first of four to be built for an already acquired run from Stamford, Conn., to New York City. The new vessels have been designed by Nigel Gee and Associates of Southampton, England and represent a clear step forward in high-speed commuter ferries.

Each ferry will be capable of carrying up to 290 passengers at a full load service speed of 42 knots. This will make them the fastest commuter ferries ever built in the United States. Fully air conditioned, the vessels will offer commuters a high degree of comfort as well as features such as power outlets, public cell phones, and a satellite TV and DVD/CD entertainment system. State-of-the-art navigation and safety equipment will be fitted, including high-speed ARPA radars and a digital chart plotting system with radar overlay. Construction is expected to take ten months for the first vessel, with the second following four months later. Total contract price for the first vessel is $5.25 million U.S.
