Spirit of Tasmania IV launches from Rauma shipyard in Finland

On October 27th, Rauma shipyard celebrated the launch and christening of Spirit of Tasmania IV, a vessel Rauma Marine Constructions is building for the Tasmanian TT-Line Company. The ship is the first of two identical car and passenger ferries that will replace similarly Finnish-built sister ships.

The new vessels will operate on an extremely challenging route across the Bass Strait between Geelong, Victoria, and Devonport, Tasmania. The ferries have been specially designed to undertake this specific route.

With 212 meters in length, 31 meters in breadth and 7 meters in draught, and the Gross tonnage of the vessel is 48,000t. Furnished with 301 Cabins, the ship can carry up to 1,800 passengers.

Before the Spirit of Tasmania vessels, RMC has built several technologically advanced commercial vessels. Last year, RMC handed over to Tallink Silja the energy-efficient car and passenger ferry MyStar that operates the route between Tallinn, Estonia, and Helsinki, Finland. In 2021, RMC handed over to Wasaline the car and passenger ferry Aurora Botnia which has won international awards for its sustainability.
