Shidao International Ferry (SIF) successfully launched on July 2 a newbuilding ferry ship under construction at Huanghai Shipbuilding.

SIF launched on July 2 ‘New Shidao Pearl’ (新石島明珠), a Ro-Ro car-ferry ship of 19,950gt class at Huanghai Shipbuilding at a ceremony.

‘New Shidao Pearl’ measures 170m in length, 26.2m in width and 6.3m in draft, and lifts 1,200 passengers with 300teu onboard, sailing at 22.5 knots, fitted with two high-speed marine engines made by Wartsila, Sweden-based world-prominent engine manufacturer.

She is anticipated to be deployed in Gusan-Shidao service in upcoming Oct. in replacement after her outfitting works and her sea trial.

Meantime, ‘New Shidao Pearl’ is the 4th Korea-China car-ferry vessel to be built by Huanghai Shipbuilding and the first ship for SIF headquartered in Korea. As a result, she is built under KR classification. The ships built by Huanghai Shipbuilding to date are Huadong Shipping’s ‘Huadong Pearl VIII’ and Dandong Ferry’s ‘Oriental Pearl VIII, and Yantai Ferry’s ‘Ocean Blue Whale’, all classified by CCS.
