The 40m high-speed catamaran Queen Star 2 is sailing a three-hour route commencing from Usuyoung Port to the popular tourist destination of Jeju Island via Chujado Island. This is the first delivery of the newly designed DFFe 4010 with Controllable Pitch Propellers (CPP) from Servogear, which allows the vessel to have a higher top speed and increased fuel efficiency at different speeds and loading conditions.
The delivery of Queen Star 2 from Damen to Seaworld Express Ferry Co.Ltd took place in late August 2015.
Although slightly smaller than the DFFe 4212, the DFFe 4010 can accommodate to the same amount of 450 maximum passengers and with two engines instead of four; the vessel can still reach a top speed of 35 knots. “This is a unique delivery with the first DFFe 4010 going into operation which is expected to be a successful model for the future,” according to Damen Sales Manager Michiel Hendrikx.
