FAST FERRIES

KMM has supported the design and development of a wide range of fast passenger and passenger/vehicle ferries over the last 10 years and our close association with Fjellstrand a.s. in Norway further broadens this database.

Designs of monohull and catamaran vessels between 25 meters and 72 meters have been developed and built using the latest innovations in hullform to enhance both performance and seakeeping capability.

Modern construction techniques including the application of friction stir-welding of flat panels have been implemented to reduce construction costs and provide higher levels of dimensional and distortion control.  Our advanced system analysis capabilities can be applied to refine structural design and optimize hullforms for low wake wash characteristics and other environmental issues.
