NKK To Construct 430-Passenger

The Japanese shipbuilder Nippon
Kokan (NKK) recently announced that it will construct an icebreaker cruise ship to carry passengers into the frozen waters of the northeast- ern Hokkaido coast of Japan. The vessel, to be built at the Narasaki
Shipyard in Hokkaido, will begin service in January 1991.
The 499-gross-ton cruise ship will be 145 feet long with a 39-foot beam, and will carry 430 passengers. Its maximum speed will be 14.5 knots, and it will be able to break through ice nearly three feet thick.

Cruises will originate from Aba- shiri Port in northeastern Hokkaido from January until mid-April.
