Last Friday March 2nd 2018, a new efficient Wagenborg ferry was baptised ‘Fostaborg’ on the yard of its builder, Gebr. Van Enkhuizen in Makkum.
The compact design aims for the highest efficiency and comfort and features Van Oossanen’s patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF). Concept design and engineering were delivered by Kroes & Poortinga. Van Oossanen provided its critical naval architecture, including the hull design.
This very comfortable and fast ferry will bring its passengers from Holwerd to Ameland island within 30 minutes, starting March 28th 2018.
This new delivery is part of a regional project that will enable passengers to travel from Leeuwarden to Ameland in one hour.
Here a link to a video of the baptism.
