Rauma-Repola Awarded $50-Million Order
To Build Cruise Ship
Finnish shipbuilder Rauma-Re- pola was recently awarded a $50- million order to build a 330-passen- ger cruise for Delphin Cruises. The vessel is the second cruise ship order won by the Finnish yard from Del- phin.
The new passenger ship, which is expected to be delivered in the spring of 1990, will operate in the
Baltic and the Mediterranean.
At present, Rauma-Repola is completing the 300-passenger cruise vessel Delphin Clipper. She is ex- pected to be delivered this month.
Catamaran Ferry Ordered
For Cross-Channel Route
The Portsmouth, U.K., yard of
Aluminium Shipbuilders Ltd. will build a 161-foot wave-piercing cata- maran for Condor, the Guernsey ferry operator. The twin-deck ves- sel, designed by International Cata- maran Designs, will be the largest passenger-only fast wave-piercing catamaran ferry in the world.
The vessel is to enter service in the second quarter of 1990 on Con- dor's cross-channel route between
St. Malo, Jersey, Guernsey and
Weymouth, currently being served by two 180-seat hydrofoils. The in- troduction of the wave-piercer should significantly improve weath- er reliability and ride quality .
The hulls of a wave-piercing cata- maran are designed with minimal
June, 1989 freeboard and reserve buoyancy so that they will tend to pierce waves in rough weather rather than ride up over them. This reduces vertical motions and gives a more comforta- ble ride.
The two main hulls are joined by a continuous bridging structure that incorporates a third hull forward on the centerline. This center hull is normally above the water but in extreme sea conditions it provides additional buoyancy, the underside and forward end being shaped to minimize shock loads should it enter the water.
Powered by four Deutz MWM
TBD 604B V16 diesels, delivering 1,682 kw each at 1,800 rpm, and waterjets, the wave-piercer will have a full load service speed of 35 knots.
Length overall will be approxi- mately 161 feet with an overall beam of 60 feet and draft of 5 feet.
The wave-piercer will be the 10th
INCAT ferry built by Aluminium
Shipbuilders. During the past year, the company has launched seven 55.7-foot catamarans for Thames
Line's service through central Lon- don and a 12-seat executive craft. It will also be the 10th wave-piercing catamaran to enter service; six smaller versions have already been delivered, and by next summer more than a dozen will be operating in Australia, New Zealand, the
United Kingdom, the U.S., and
Yugoslavia. ^ """ER GOT YOU DOWN? x-u. • liyu i i i
