South Korea’s KT Marine this week signed a contract for a “4212” fast ferry with Damen Shipyards.

The vessel will be delivered by mid-2024 and is the seventh Damen Fast Ferry in the Korean Market and the fifth of the FFe 4212 class.  It will operate on the route between Yeosu harbour and Geomundo Island (off the south coast of South Korea).

The speedy delivery is possible due to Damen’s speculative building strategy with the vessel already under construction at the Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam.

Length 42 metres
Capacity 423 passengers
Speed 40 knots (max)
Power 4 main engines delivering 5,760 bkW of power to four waterjets
