Thursday the 26th of June, Brødrene Aa was officially awarded the contract to build a new sightseeing vessel for the norwegian operator The Fjords As. The 42m carbon fibre catamaran is scheduled for delivery in May 2016 and will be operating on "Nærøyfjord" which is a famous norwegian fjord listed on the Unesco World Heritage list.
We are excited about the opportunity to start producing this new, innovative design, which we believe will create great experiences for the tourists on Nærøyfjord. It is also a brake through for us to bring our competence in making fuel efficient high speed vessels to this new segment of building environmentally friendly vessels for lower speeds, says Tor Øyvin Aa, managing director of Brødrene Aa.
The official contract is based upon a preliminary agreement made in late april, here you can read more about the news that was released then (scroll down on the news blog).
