French Polynesia operator to welcome newest ferry

French Polynesia operator SNGV2 will soon take delivery of a new Ro-Pax ferry.

Designed by French naval architects Mauric and built by Spanish shipyard Armon, Terevau Piti will be operated on daily trips along the 12.5-nautical-mile route between the islands of Papeete and Moorea as well as special holiday trips to and from the Leeward islands.

The newbuild has a steel hull, an aluminium superstructure, an LOA of 77 metres, a beam of 17 metres, and capacity for 675 passengers and up to 500 lane metres of freight. Amenities include restaurants, a VIP lounge, and a sun deck.

Two 2,652kW diesel engines propel the ferry to a maximum speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots.

Terevau Piti recently left Armon’s Vigo facilities and is presently en route to French Polynesia.
