WSD 80 : Marlin series
The MARLIN series has been developed in close co-operation with Graig and the DNV classification society. The design offers cutting edge features for container vessels.
The MARLIN series delivers approximately 30 percent improved fuel efficiency per TEU carried, improved capacity and slow steaming potential, better loading flexibility for different container types, including a high reefer intake, and lower emissions when compared to vessels currently in service.
“This series responds to the industry’s needs. There is a gap in the container ship market for quality, fuel efficient, competitively-priced and environmentally-friendly feeder ships to service the ultra large container ships now being brought into service by the major lines. This advanced MARLIN family of designs will fill that gap, and we expect this order to be the first of several series of larger capacity future-proof vessels, backed by the strength of the MARLIN consortia.”
Hugh Williams, CEO, Graig.
“The MARLIN series is a major leap forward for the container feeder section. The design marks a new era in the container industry’s standard for environmentally sustainable, competitively priced and fuel efficient feeder vessels,”
