Image of the Day: MV Veteran Slides Down the Slipway

Launch of RoPax Ferry 8017 (lowres)
Damen Shipyards Galaţi in Romania recently launched the MV Veteran, an 80-metre ice class Ro-Pax ferry.

This is the first of two Newfoundland and Labrador ferries featuring a design stemming from a Canadian-Danish partnership between Fleetway and Knud E. Hansen.

The first vessel is scheduled for delivery to the province in the fall of this year and the second ferry in early 2016. Both ferries will be able to transport up to 60 cars and 200 passengers.
