MESA 80: MITSUI'S SEMI-SUBMERSIBLE CATAMARAN AS A FAST FERRY

This article describes the development of Mitsui's semi-submerged catamaran passenger ferry "Mesa 80". The 670GT vessel is powered by two-staged turbocharged Pielstick PA4 engines, with a speed of 27 knots and has a capacity for 446 passengers. Among its advantages are the Mesa 80's large deck area, low response to wave forces and therefore greater stability, and its good operating economy.
