Iran exports domestically-made catamaran ship to Turkey

Iran has started to export domestically-made catamaran ship to Turkey, Tasnim news agency reported on Friday.

The ship was the first of its kind sold at around 10 million U.S. dollars to Turkey by Iran’s Arvandan Shipbuilding Company, the managing director of the firm, Hossein Qorbani, was quoted by the report as saying.

One of the features of the Iranian-made catamaran is that it is able to sail into shallow waters about two meters deep, Qorbani said.

Another advantage of these vessels is that they can travel in bad weather conditions, he said, adding the catamaran’s speed capability is 30 knots (55 km/h).

It takes about 12 to 18 months to build a catamaran, and under particular circumstances, the Arvandan Company can manufacture them in eight months, he said.

The quality assurance of the body of the ship has been certified by France’s Bureau Veritas, he added.
