The design reflects demand for greater lift and outreach capabilities. The vessel's equipment outfit takes account of market needs. The ships will have a pair of state-of-the-art rotating mast cranes, with a combined lift capacity of 1,600 tons at 16 m outreach and a maximum outreach of 35 m. The vessel's shallow draft of 6.5 m maintains the small port operational capability that is the basis of the Jumbo fleet.

Seven Seas Voyager Will Boast
Dolphin Podded Propellers
Seven Seas Voyager, the new 50,000-gt cruise ship under construction at T. Mari- otti Shipyard in Genoa, Italy for Radisson
Seven Seas, will be among the first ships to house the new Dolphin podded propul- sion system jointly developed by STN
Atlas Marine Electronics and John Crane-
Lips. The vessel, which is scheduled for a 2003 delivery, will boast podded propul- sors delivering 2 x 7,000 kW at 170 rpm.
Main features include integration of a powerful electric drive into a hydro- dynamically optimized pod below ship, resulting in a directly-driven propeller.
Extensive CFD analyses and model tank tests have led to the development of a pod shape with enhanced efficiency and maneuvering characteristics. 20 Maritime Reporter & Engineering News
