Fjellstrand Delivers High-Speed Catamarans 'Sea Cat' And 'Jetcat'

The Norwegian-built high-speed catamarans Sea Cat and Jetcat have now been delivered by Fjellstrand a.s. to the recently established shipping company AW Line in the Finnish Aaland Islands.

The Sea Cat is serving the route between the Aaland capital of Mariehamn and Nortaelje in Sweden, a distance of 45 nautical miles including 21 in open sea, that is covered in 105 minutes. The Jetcat covers a route 52 nautical miles long, between Umeaa in northern Sweden and Vasa on the Finnish coast, in 120 minutes. While the Sea Cat can carry up to 230 people, the other catamaran takes 213 passengers.

Both vessels have a top speed of about 40 knots.

Designed for passenger comfort and low noise level, the "Cats" offer spacious seating, with sofa groups separated by green plants in the central section, a separate TV/video saloon, a multi-channel music system with headphones in each seat, and an efficient ventilation system.

One of Fjellstrand's latest orders comes from Dae Won Ferry Ltd. in South Korea. This vessel represents the first newbuilding sold from Norway to South Korea, while a total of 75 vessels have been built in the latter country for Norwegian owners.
