Australian shipbuilder Austal has delivered the second of two catamaran ferries to Taiwan’s Brave Line from its Philippines shipyard.

The 50-meter high-speed catamarans were built in Balamban, Cebu under an AUD 44 million contract signed between the parties in September 2017.

The first vessel under the shipbuilding deal was delivered in mid-March 2019, with both ferries capable of carrying 550 passengers and including a hull form optimised for improved fuel efficiency.

“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,” David Singleton, Austal CEO, said.

Singleton added that the company expects more orders of the platform based on the interest of other customers following the delivery of the first Brave Line unit in March.

The shipyard is also building the 109-meter high speed catamaran for Fjord Line of Norway and a 118-meter trimaran for Fred. Olsen’s operations in the Canary Islands.
