It's a trailer ship. It's a container ship. It's a vehicle ship. It's a unitized and palletized cargo ship
It's Sun Ship's new combination RO/RO.
No matter how you view it, our new combina- tion RO/RO is one flexible ship that can easily be tailored to the precise needs of the operator. Three of these versatile cargo vessels are now being constructed by Sun for Waterman Steamship Corp
The flexibility is inherent in the design.
Once the operator settles on the specs he gets a ship that's designed from the keel up to perform the functions he wants.
The ship has a cargo capacity of 762 forty-foot containers and trailers.
The forward section is for containerized freight, but the main deck and hatch Sun Ship Inc. covers are capable of RO/RO operations. Aft is 100% roll-on, roll-off.
Each ship is equipped with a full-slewing ramp on the stern. A self-sustaining crane is available for loading and unloading. The modern engine room features a steam turbine power plant that can generate a speed of 22 knots at 32,000 maximum shaft horse-power. Accommo- dations for 41 are provided, including an owner's stateroom and spares.
Sun Ship is the world's most experienced builder of RO/RO ships.
