MS Rygerprins visiting Servogear23.03.2015
Yesterday Rødne Trafikk AS arrived at Rubbestadneset with their newest addition to their fleet, MS Rygerprins (BN 279). The vessel were launched at Norwegian carbon experts Brødrene Aa in Hyen March 25th, and stopped by on its way home to Stjernarøy.
MS Rygerprins is a carbon fibre catamaran, and has an overall length of 21m and width of 7,8 m. The main deck accommodates 97 passengers over three rows, with 25 of the seats placed towards tabels. The vessel will replace MS Rygerkatt and operate in the route Ryfylke-Stavanger.
Anders Rødne, earlier Managing Director at L. Rødne og Sønner, was very happy with their new vessel. He said that MS Rygerprins will have over 60 departures a day, and that Controllable Pitch Propellers from Servogear is the only propulsion system suited for the job.
The new build is powered by 2 x Volvo Penta D13C3-AMP connected to Servogear HD220 gears and controllable pitch propellers from Servogear, giving the catamaran a top speed of 29 knots.
We wish Rødne Trafikk AS all the best with their new MS Rygerkatt
