Valid till end of November 2017

Email should you be interested in purchasing it.
The MV/EXPRESS is a 22,67 meter long fast ferry for 114 passengers that has been built in Germany in 1994. The vessel has Servogear adjustable-pitch propellers driven by twin 734 kW diesel engines and has a service speed of 22-25 knots in full load conditions. With a serious buyer and some work on the engines by the current owners experienced engineers the top speed can be increased. In the event that the buyer requires 35 knots top speed, the former engines could be replaced by new engines of the same type which have considerably higher power and which could be used as the vessel was originally designed for larger engines with the existing servo gear propeller systems. The vessel has a full displacement load of 52 tons and is operating as a ferry catamaran for 114 passengers between Jordan and Egypt.

Several key characteristics that the vessel has includes low fuel consumption and carbon emmissions, low wake-wash, favourable sea-keeping with smooth performance in rough waters and waves. These benefits are a direct result of the hydrofoil-assist system that was designed and developed by Dr. K-G. W. Hoppe.
