TWO SEAJET FERRIES ON ORDER FOR DANISH MOLS-LINIEN

The Seajet is a fast ferry developed by Danyard A/S in co- operation with NQEA Australia Pty. Ltd. Seajet, which can be characterized as a semi-SWATH catamaran, was designed with the aim of developing a ferry with excellent seakeeping properties. This has been achieved by combining the good seakeeping properties of the SWATH concept and the good resistance properties of the conventional catamaran concept. The Danish ferry operator Mols- Linien has placed an order for the construction of two Seajet fast ferries. The vessel will be built at Danyard's subsidiary Aalborg Aluminium. The first ferry is scheduled for delivery in March 1996 and the second for June 1996. Principal particulars of the Seajet are: length,overall 76.10, beam, moulded 23.40m draught, loaded 3.36m tonnage, deadweight 250t speed, service (gas turbines) 43.6 knots speed, service (diesel engines) 39.5 knots car capacity 120 passengers 450
