MARLIN – a step change for container feeder ships

Graig has initiated a step change in container feeder ships by collaboration in the design of a fuel-efficient new generation of MARLIN 2000 container super feeders to be built in China.  

The vessels will fill the gap in the containership market for large, efficient and environmentally-friendly feeder ships to service the ultra large containerships now being brought into service by the major lines.

The MARLIN 2000 series of designs has been developed by Wärtsilä, working closely with Graig and classification major DNV.  The designs are the product of extensive research and tank testing and consultation with end users. With a number of design variants, the series delivers approximately 30 per cent improved fuel efficiency per TEU carried, improved capacity and slow steaming potential, better loading flexibility for different container types including a high reefer intake combined with lower emissions when compared to vessels currently in service.

Key features of the Marlin package are:

  • Advance suite of optimised, efficient and green designs
  • Competitively priced
  • Attractive finance package, subject to status
  • Experienced partners
  • Strong supervision team in place during construction
  • Contract and high level shipyard support during construction
  • Series production at selected Chinese shipyards giving high standards and timely deliveries
  • Experienced technical managers for post delivery
