Camper & Nicholsons sells 146m fast ferry Capricorn

Camper & Nicholsons sells 146m fast ferry Capricorn

Hot news here as Michael Rafferty at Camper & Nicholsons in Palm Beach tells me he’s sold the 146m fast ferry Capricorn.

Built in 1999 by Fincantieri, the ferry’s buyer is a repeat client who plans to convert this 40 knot ferry into a 152m superyacht. The sale was completed by Michael Rafferty and Keith Lawrence, an independent broker.

And now for the technical details: four diesel engines and two gas turbines supply the power of 95,000hp. The gas turbines are connected to the two booster waterjets, while the diesels are connected to the biggest steering water jets ever built by KaMeWa. The four diesel engines are MTU 20V 1163 20V TB73 L units rated 6,500kW each and the two gas turbines are GE LM 2500 systems rated at 22,000kW each. The system includes two double inlet reduction gears (diesel shafts), two reduction gears (gas turbines), two booster waterjets (gas turbines) and two wing steering waterjets (diesel shafts). The high flexibility of the propulsion system allows Capricorn to have three operative speeds.

Michael goes on to say that naval architects and shipyards are currently being interviewed to develop the project and renderings will be available soon.
