RODRIQUEZ AQUASTRADA ENTERS SERVICE ON SECOND ROUTE

The Rodriquez Aquastradas high speed ferries GUIZZO and SCATTO are described. The overall dimensions and propulsion system of SCATTO are identical to those of GUIZZO but its capacity has been increased from 448 to 535 passengers and from 126 to 156 cars. The performance penalty is a reduction in the full load/calm water service speed of 1-2 knots to 41-42 knots. A general arrangement drawing of SCATTO is included in the article, and also a general arrangement drawing of a third Aquastrada ordered by Corsica Ferries.
