Coastal Cruiser 199 Peng Xing 20 delivered
With the delivery of the Peng Xing 20 to Shenzhen Peng Xing Shipping company, the last aluminium fast ferry out of a series of 5 CoCo Yachts designed and AFAI Southern Shipyard built is a fact. In 2012, Peng Xing Shipping company ordered 2 aluminium fast ferries, and just after launching of the first vessel named Peng Xing 15, the shipping company ordered 3 more ferries of the same type. Peng Xing is in service for more than 1 year, and the feedback of the passengers and crew is very good. Very low noise & vibrations levels, very nice sea keeping behaviour, and compared to similar ferries in the Pearl River Delta, 25% lower fuel consumption. Not only passengers enjoy the difference, also the crew is very pleased with the vessels. The noise levels in the wheelhouse are around 59 dB(a) at service speed, which is more than 2 times less noise than on their older vessels!
Peng Xing Shipping company is running fast ferries in the Pearl River delta, between Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Macau and Hong Kong.
