The presentation of the vessel will take place within the framework of the III International Passenger Forum “SmartTransport”, held in St. Petersburg. The catamaran will replace the legendary "Meteora".
According to the developers, "a feature of this vessel is the manufacture of the hull from modern composite materials, which significantly reduces its weight without loss of strength properties." It "is intended for transporting passengers along major rivers, as well as in the near sea zone."
It is noted that due to the design decisions, the ship can move even in the 4-point storm without loss of speed.
The Griffon is capable of transporting 150 people a distance of up to 1000 km without refueling, which makes it possible to use it virtually throughout Russia.
The state is actively engaged in expanding transport infrastructure, and the development of a modern catamaran will positively affect the emergence of a full-fledged river fleetconcludes edition.
