Following the operational and seaworthiness testing of a 600-ton experimental cargo catamaran, over a seven year period, a prototype 1,000-ton catamaran is now at the test stage. This new vessel is designed to carry high tariff deck cargo and sail on main inland waterways. A complete description of the catamaran is given and it is pointed out that this type of ship has operating-technical advantages over similar designated single hull vessels.
