Oceangoing Ships

Delivered In 1993

Selecting the Outstanding Oceangoing Ships of 1993 was a formidable task, considering the high level of quality tonnage produced by yards around the globe. Nonetheless, this year's array of vessels includes some truly out- standing ships, including the 302,200-dwt Siam, the largest double hull VLCC ever, from Daewoo; the Kvaerner Masa-Yard-built Juan J. Sister

RoRo/Passenger ferry, the first Spanish ship ever built in Finland; and the MHI-built VLCC Cosmo

Delphinus, the first ship of this type equipped with contra-rotating propellers. Overall the list is a tribute to those who built, designed, equipped and bought these outstanding ships.

In March the 59,914-grt car/passenger cruise ferry Silja Europa was delivered by Meyer Werft of Germany to a Finnish subsidiary of

Papenburger Fahrschiffsreederei GmbH & Co.

It is reportedly the largest vessel of its kind at 662 feet long, with a breadth of 105 feet, a draft of about 22.3 feet and 13 decks. The ship has 465 outside and 729 inside cabins for a maximum passenger capacity of 3,013. Luxury accommoda- tions include a swimming pool and a variety of lounges.

Silja Europa's four MAN B&W 6L58/64 en- gines each provide 7,950 kW at 428 rpm, driving

KaMeWa variable pitch, four-blade propeller plants through Renk-Tacke gearboxes. At 85 percent power, the Silja Europa attains 21.5 knots.

Classed by Bureau Veritas, Silja Europa flies the Finnish flag.
