Maritime Executive: The competition, a project of the WFSA, challenges teams of Naval Architecture students to design a vessel that would serve a population dependent on ferry transportation. The requirements of this year’s competition were to design a RoPax ferry able to transport 185 passengers plus a crew of 15. 

For this year’s competition, 25 student teams from universities and schools all over the world registered, but, according to Dr. Weisbrod, “Only nine teams stayed the very arduous course and actually submitted designs.” Information about the winners will be posted on the WFSA website, and disseminated through the trade press when the awards are announced. Read more from Maritime Executive here…

Congratulations Students!
