Austal Australia has delivered Hull 394 Bajamar Express to Fred. Olsen Express at a ceremony held at the company’s shipyard in Henderson in Western Australia. During sea trials, Bajamar Express has achieved impressive speed, seakeeping and passenger comfort results, highlighted by Austal’s new MARINELINK-Smart technology that provides real-time analysis of vessel performance, on board and remotely. With the benefit of Austal’s MOTION CONTROL System, Bajamar Express was able to reach trial speeds in excess of 44 knots whilst maintaining superior passenger comfort. Capable of transporting 1,100 passengers and 276 cars at a cruising speed of more than 37 knots, the new trimaran ferries for Fred. Olsen Express feature class-leading interior amenities and facilities, including multiple bars, kiosks, a retail shop and children’s play area.

The 118 metre high-speed trimaran ferry is the first of two identical vessels ordered by Fred. Olsen Express in a EUR 126 million contract in October 2017. The second vessel, Bañaderos Express, Austal Hull 395, is under construction at Austal Philippines shipyard in Balamban in Cebu and is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2021.
