A GIANT MESTRAL - THE ALHAMBRA WILL CARRY 1250 PASSENGERS AND 246 CARS

The MESTRAL fast ferry design was unveiled by E.N. Bazan, Spain in 1993. Bazan have now developed a new fast ferry design named ALHAMBRA, whose capacity is about three times that of the MESTRAL. This paper describes damage to three types of equipment, unrelated to the ship design and construction, which have occurred during service of ALBAYZIN, the first vessel of the MESTRAL design, and outlines solutions to avoid such damage in the future. An account of the ship performance is also given.
