Ferries and ro-pax vessels

Ferries and ro-pax vessels

Most ferries are unique designs based on their route, freight and passenger capacity as well as onboard services. Based on the experience gained from hundreds of ferry concepts, we at Deltamarin know how to meet your targets cost-effectively and resulting in an optimised vessel design.

Deltamarin has been doing systematic R&D work for years aimed at understanding the correct solutions for typical ferry design challenges covering areas like fuel efficiency, safety and the “Safe Return to Port” (SRtP) rule. We apply new technologies in our designs once it has been proven to bring real added value for the ship owner and operator.

Read more about our own ferry and ro-pax designs:

  • energy efficient and environmentally friendly ro-pax vessel DeltaChallenger,
  • compact ferry DeltaLinx, designed for short coastal routes, and
  • DeltaSAFER, SAFE and AFFORDABLE new-built ro-pax ferries for the Asian market.

For conversions Deltamarin offers you a wide range of services from feasibility studies for the Emission Control Areas (ECA) operations or fuel saving modifications to full EPCM package deliveries of scrubbers or ballast water treatment systems.
