Trinidad Water Taxis…built by Austal Ships

The Trinidad Water Taxi project is now drawing to a close will all vessels now being Technically Accepted by us as the Owners representatives for the Trinidad Government.

These vessels came out really well and we are very impressed with the overall finish and performance.

41m long, 405 passengers, 37.5 knots at 90% of the available horsepower out of 4 x 1440 kw MTU 16V2000M72 main engines driving through Ka Me Wa water jets.
