Service company Venetian Marketing Services (VMSL) in Hong Kong has received a delivery of 14 high-speed passenger ferries from Australian shipbuilder Austal.
Each of the 155.8ft aluminium CotaiJets, capable of carrying 413 passengers at a speed of 42kt, is now in operation between Hong Kong and Macao, Austal said.
The CotaiJets are powered by four MTU 16V4000 M70s producing 2,320kW at 2,000rpm, driving four Kamewa 63 SII waterjets.
The vessels are also fitted with transom-mounted SeaState interceptors providing high-speed ride control.
The latest four vessels have been further enhanced with the addition of forward-mounted T-foils and aft-mounted T-Max, an auxiliary steering system.
