Featuring around 13,000 gross registered tonnes, the 130‑metre long, 32‑metre wide vessel will be able to carry up to 2100 passengers and 220 cars.

Currently, work is underway on design and engineering, while the physical construction will begin as soon as the detail design drawings are completed and approved by the customer.

The ship is expected to have a maximum speed of over 40 knots. It will be powered by four dual fuel engines that will burn environmentally friendly LNG, while operating between Argentina and Uruguay.
