The new river catamaran Anatoliy Uglovskiy has sailed from Archangel for trials in the White Sea. The project of the passenger catamaran was developed by the Central Technical Design Bureau of the Ministry of the River Fleet of the RSFSR in cooperation with scientists of the Gor'kiy and Leningrad institutes of water transport engineers. The prototype vessel was built at the ship repair yards of Velikiy Ustyug. The catamaran was made of aluminum- magnesium alloys. Because of the twin hulls, the vessel has a wide deck area where passenger cabins and a lounge are located. An open promenade deck is located at the stern. The vessel can accommodate 150 passengers for a trip lasting eight hours. On runs lasting half that time the number of passengers may be doubled. The new motorship is not affected by weather and can safely cruise along rivers and lakes during storms. Its shallow draught makes it possible for the vessel to navigate rivers with a water depth of 1.1 meters. The vessel has a top speed of 42 kilometers per hour.
