Austal’s Philippines shipyard has delivered a 50-meter catamaran to Taiwanese Brave Line in what is the company’s first commercial contract in the East Asian country.

The Australian-designed catamaran is the first of two 550 passenger vessels being constructed at the Balamban, Cebu, shipyard under an AUD 44 million (USD 31 million) contract from September 2017.

The two aluminium catamarans will be capable of carrying 552 passengers over 2 decks at a speed of up to 39 knots.

“This vessel further demonstrates how Austal Philippines has established itself as a trusted and successful shipyard that produces high quality vessels for the worldwide market,” Austal CEO, David Singleton, said.

The shipyard is also building the 109-meter high speed catamaran for Fjord Line of Norway. When complete, this vessel will be capable of carrying up to 1,000 tonnes and transporting more than 1,000 passengers and 425 cars at a speed of over 40 knots.
