The Australian ship building company Austal has launched the 109-meter high-speed express Express 4 build for the Danish ferry service company Molslinjen. The ship is currently getting its last preparations ready before being tested at sea prior to being delivered as part of the acceptance and transfer process.

”The commercial ferry sector has been strengthen further these last 18 months with Austal Auto Express 109 as a benchmark for large, technologically advanced, super effective high speed crafts” says Austals Vice President of sale and marketing, Ben Marland.

The construction of this next generation catamaran began in April 2017, and has stayed on schedule in regards to delivery, which will take place in January 2019. The launch follows the roll-out and assembly of the hull and superstructure in August.

Express 4 has an optimized hull shape designed to minimize fuel consumption. It also has a so-called Ride Control System, which according to Austal will result in superior sailing and comfort for the 1,000 plus passengers that will be transported at speeds of up to 40 knots.
