This double-ended ferry will transport passengers in Dordrecht, Netherlands, between the two banks of the "Vielle Meuse" and the lower reach of the Merwede. Developed in collaboration with the Stirling Design International design office, the boat will be able to move equally in both directions without having to turn around, reducing the operating time and fuel consumption.

 

With a 23 meters lenght, 8,2 meters width and 1,7 meters draft, the vessel will have the capacity of 200 passengers and 80 bicycles.

 

Equipped with two azimuth thrusters, driven by two 180 hp engines, the 3 crew members will maneuver this solid, functional and fuel-efficient boat easily.
