With the delivery of the m.v. ‘Saffier’, a new vessel type has come into operation. For the design and engineering, Barkmeijer Shipyards and Conoship International were keeping a clear view on the typical owner’s requirements and design constraints and put a lot of effort in hull form optimization in order to secure favorable sea keeping characteristics in combination with excellent deadweight-, speed- and installed power ratio’s. The vessel has been designed as a versatile general cargo ship, with a large single hold of 264000 cb.ft. and a length of 66 meters. This cargo hold length has already shown its favorable dimensions and capacity in today’s market for voluminous and long cargo units, such as project cargoes, windmills, offshore constructions, cranes, pipes.
