Vessel of the Month __________

Although Murillo embodies a different design to that of the two new RoPax sis- ters, she similarly displays the requisite flexibility to enable use in different ser- vices with impunity.

Significant in a Balearics context is the vessel's design draft of 21 ft. (6.5 m). compatible with the needs of working into the Menorcan port of Mahon. Sorol- la and Fortuny have been assigned to the prime routes connecting Barcelona and

Valencia with Paltria di Mallorca.

Compania Trasmediterranea sees a clear link between this year's improve- ment in revenues and economic perfor- mance and its investment in new ferries of higher standard and increased capaci- ty. efficiency and productivity.

Timothy Graul Marine Design

Specializes In Variety

For the past 20 years, Timothy Graul

Marine Design (TGMD). based in Stur- geon Bay, Wise., has designed a full spectrum of vessels, most recently the three-mast wood schooner Denis Sulli- van. The vessel, which is a re-creation of a 19th Century Great Lakes cargo schooner sailed last winter from ports in

Florida and this summer has called upon a variety of Great Lakes ports.

The 83-ft. (25.2-m) Evening Star was designed by Timothy Graul Marine Design for Shoreline

Marine of Chicago.

Other vessels recently completed by

TGMD designs include a 96-ft. (29.2- m) aluminum research catamaran for the

University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science; a 120-ft. (36.5-m) ferry barge and 55-ft. (16.7-m) towboat for the State of Illinois built by Serodino of Chattanooga. In addition, Bay ship recently delivered the 83-ft. (25.2-m) Evening Star to Shore- line Marine of Chicago. The vessel, which was designed by TGMD, is

USCG-certified for 340 passengers for architectural tours and sightseeing cruis- es. Another significant segment of

TGMD's business is engineering con- versions and repowering of vessels. On specific project that is currently under- way will result in a 20-year-old boat that will be delivered next season with new engines, more passenger space and greater speed.
