The Russian Far East Company to Export Innovative Composite-Built Ship
Foreign clients took interest in Russian-made commercial vessels.
Composite Shipbuilding LLC, a Russian company and a resident of the Free Port of Vladivostok, met with IGE Yachts (Republic of Korea), the South East Asia’s leading marine equipment supplier on December 2 in Vladivostok. During the talks, the parties discussed the process of drafting of an export contract for the Pacifico Voyager 117-class high-speed twin-hull boat.
Prior to that, the partners have already discussed possible cooperation options. Upon confirmation of the possibility to reach the Korean markets with the project, the parties have agreed upon the visit of the Korean party to the shipyard in Vladivostok. Those were first ever negotiations with foreign clients interested in Russian-made civil vessels, said the Russian company’s spokesman. The issues were Pacifico Adventure 99 and Pacifico Voyager 117 projects.
"What interests foreign buyers most is application of advanced composite shipbuilding technologies, modern domestic-produced materials and performance features of the project created by Albatross Marine Design international design bureau. Apart from determination of the terms of cooperation with the Korean party, we presented the shipyard’s completed and yet unfinished projects, showed a new production site for the serial production of ships up to 12 meters long", shared Dmitry Voloshenko who heads the Managing Board at Composite Shipbuilding LLC.
Pacifico Voyager 117, a 12-meter cruise twin-hull boat, combines excellent navigability, spacious interior, and modern attractive appearance. Low fuel consumption and better desalinization capability ensure stand-alone sea cruises for 3-4 days. Cruise speed of the vessel is 22 knots.
Composite Shipbuilding LLC is aimed at developing next-generation civilian fleet. The shipbuilders produce twin-hull composite boats of various classes. Currently, the yard has launched the commercial production of Pacifico Adventure 72 designed for inland waters and littoral sea zones. The cruising boat fitted with the necessary equipment may also be used as a service craft.
