Denmark-based ship designer Knud E Hansen has released a new design for roll-on/roll-off passenger (RoPax) ferry that can carry up to 1,500 passengers and 440 cars.
The 154m-long ship also offers an additional 657 lane metres to accommodate trucks and trailers.
The concept ship includes three decks of public spaces for passengers. It will feature 112 en-suite cabins, two lounges, internet café, self-service restaurant, bar, reception, shopping area, and other facilities.
The ferry will also have a number of amenities, including 41 single-occupancy cabins, dining spaces and other recreational facilities. It will also include a helipad on the top deck.
Capable of cruising at 25k, the vessel can sail around the world in a range of operating conditions.
The RoPax ferry is fitted with four engines that produce a combined power output of almost 48MW and are fueled by marine diesel oil (MDO).

According to Knud E Hansen, the ferry can operate at almost peak engine load even at slow speeds due to its diesel-electric propulsion plant, two tunnel thrusters and azipods.
A large battery bank has also been installed to support the power requirements of the ship when it is docked, allowing for zero emissions in port.
Certified as a EuroClass Type-A ship, the vessel is completely ‘safety of life at sea’ (SOLAS)-compliant.
Knud E Hansen said that the design of the ship has been developed in-house in collaboration with naval architects, marine engineers and designers.
The entire interior of the ship has been created by Design Studio B33.
In June, Knud E Hansen unveiled a new design for a 110m-long sail-assisted cruise ship Wind Cruise Vessel.
In April, Knud E Hansen signed a contract with Chinese firm Nanjing Jinling Shipyard to develop a basic design for three roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels based on the Finnlines/Grimaldi/Knud E. Hansen design.
