Coastal Cruiser 288 “HAI JING” delivered to Zhuhai High Speed Ferry Company

Afai Southern Shipyard (Panyu Guangzhou) Ltd.  and CoCo Yachts B.V., are proud to announce that the second of the two (2) state of the art fast ferries was delivered to Zhuhai High Speed Ferry Company on April 22nd 2016. The vessel has been given the name: HAI JING. During the sea trials a top speed of 38.0 knots at full load was measured. 

Special attention has been given to ensure high level of outfitting in the passenger accommodation, both on main and upper deck. Both exterior colour design and interior design has been made by Spear Green from Australia. With noise levels of average 74 dB(a) on main deck and 70 dB(a) on the upper deck, it is a great vessel to travel.

Coco Yachts is responsible for the basic design, including hull lines, construction drawings, weight calculation, power-speed calculations, FEM structural calculations and noise & vibrations calculations, whereas Afai Southern Shipyard is responsible for the production drawings for construction, machinery and systems.

Currently there are 5 more CoCo Yachts’ designed fast ferries under construction at AFAI Southern Shipyard. One Coastal Cruiser 322 for Cosco Xiamen, one Coastal Cruiser 199 & one Coastal Cruiser 300 for Peng Xing Ferry Company, one Coastal Cruiser 300 for Zhuhai Ferries and one Coastal Cruiser 298 for Sanya.
