Jun. 24 2022
The three catamarans will operate under the flag of ATTICA GROUP, buyer of the vessels and the main provider of ferry services for passengers and cargo in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
Aero 1 Highspeed with its 36 length meters and 9.7 width meters, delivered on 1st June 2022, is the very first vessel of Brødrene Aas newly introduced AERO concept, featuring aerodynamic and energy efficient design, accompanied with lightweight carbon fiber trademark construction. With a full load, it will be able to maintain a maximum speed of 32.2 knots.
These new Aeros boast an ultra-modern design and innovative features that will significantly upgrade the travel experience for the over 3 million passengers travelling annually on the Saronic routes.
The interior is designed with a focus on comfort, even in rough seas. The spacious passenger accommodation area has large windows, providing excellent view and ample natural light. It also has special provisions for the facilitation of passengers with reduced mobility and dedicated area for bicycle transportation.
Bureau Veritas was involved from the early stage, reviewed the drawing and conducted the approval as well as the supervision at the yard.
Congratulations to Brodrene AA for delivering the vessels and safe journeys to Attica as the ships enter in operations.
