Shaping the future - a review of performance for 2021

Our operating performance | Maritime Design & Consultancy continued In the US, Kitsap Transit took delivery of Enetai, a 42-metre high-speed catamaran commuter ferry with capacity for 225 passengers. The vessel was built to our design by Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Seattle, Washington. She commenced operations in Seattle in early 2021 and a sister ferry Commander was due for launch later the same year. In Ireland, we supplied Aran Island Ferries’ latest passenger ferry, the aluminium 40-metre Saoirse Na Farraige. With a capacity of 394 passengers, it’s the biggest domestic passenger ferry in Ireland and operates from Galway. The Saoirse Na Farraige was built to our design by Cheoy Lee Shipyards in China. We secured a multi-vessel design order for UK Ministry of Defence Police. Partnering with Marine Specialised Technology, we will be supplying 18 high-speed 15-metre patrol boats based on our new and more environmentally-friendly design for use at naval bases across the UK. The past year has seen the completion and delivery of two new passenger ferries in different parts of the world. BMT in action BMT Group | Shaping our future 26
