Our ship nr 284, "Jin Zhu Hu", has successfully performed the technical trials and was recently loaded onto its carrier heading for Hong Kong.
The 40m carbon fibre catamaran is ordered by Guangzhou Liuanshan Port Passenger Transport Co.Ltd and final delivery will be executed after arrival in Hong Kong in mid December.
Equipped with 2x MTU 16V2000 M72 engines and the new S63-4 waterjets from Rolls Royce, the 270 pax catamaran is designed for a speed of 34 knots. During speed trials, the new build acheived a top speed of 35 knots, carrying 30 tonnes of dead weight.
The design is based on our advanced slender hull, used for severel prior deliveries, such as Krilo Carbo, Terningen and Tyrhaug. However, "Jin Zhu Hu" is the first vessel being build with our brand new exterior design which is developed in cooperation with Hareide Design.
Featuring a spacious accomodation area on each deck, two large refreshment kiosks, quality seats from West Mekan and large windows, the interior of Jin Zhu Hu holds a high standard. Floating floor has been installed to reduce noice level, and during trials an average of only 66 decibel on main deck and 59 decibel on the upper deck was recorded.
