Each catamaran vessel will have all-aluminium construction, a length of 30 metres, capacity for 70 passengers and up to seven vehicles, and a service speed of between 22 and 25 knots. A deck crane will also be fitted for loading and unloading of other cargo.

Two of the ferries will be delivered to Norled while the third will be handed over to Floro Skyssbat.
