RAISING THE PROFILE OF SHORT-SEA SHIPPING

There are two parts to this article. The first describes the 1,640 dwt SEA ORADE, built for German shipowner Frank Dahl by the Bayerische Schiffbau, and is claimed to be the first cargo-carrying vessel incorporating the use of waterjets as prime movers. The second part describes a newbuilding called the SUPERIORITY. The vessel is a 99.99m-long box-hold dry cargo ship suitable for carrying bulk cargoes, steel products or ISO containers. To be able to navigate inland waterways and under low bridges, it has hydraulically powered masts that can be lowered when passing under these obstructions. The navigating bridge can similarly be raised or lowered to suit air draft limitations.
