Australian shipbuilding company Austal has received a contract to design and construct four 41m high-speed passenger catamaran ferries for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

The aluminium vessels, designed to carry 405 passengers, will ferry between San Fernando and Port of Spain in southwest Trinidad, at a speed of about 37kt, Austal said.

The company constructs the ferries in its Tasmanian and Western Australian shipyards with delivery scheduled for late 2010.

Trinidad and Tobago’s National Infrastructure Development Company will own the ferries, while external consultants will operate the vessels.
