High stevedoring costs in Australia provided the impetus for containerization of cargoes, hence the ship's design with cellular container capacity. Ro-ro facilities were also provided for the carriage of packaged timber cargoes. The o a length is 181.76 M, dwt 16.477, and the main propulsion is by twin turbocharged "Kawasaki-man" 9.152/55a engines delivering 9.495 bhp at 450 rpm. Service speed is 18 knots, range 14.000 miles and the complement 46. General arrangement is included. Order from NSFI as No. 16601.
