Wight Shipyard delivers new ferry to MBNA Thames Clippers

UK shipbuilder Wight Shipyard has completed its third and largest vessel for MBNA Thames Clippers, the 38-metre catamaran ferry Venus Clipper.

Designed by One2Three Naval Architects of Australia, the LR/DNV GL-classed vessel was built to be able to transport up to 220 passengers between numerous floating piers at a speed of not less than 25 knots at full load draught.

Venus Clipper is powered by two Scania DI16 077M 662kW diesel engines driving two Rolls Royce/Kamewa 40A3 waterjets fitted to each hull.
