Photo of the Day: HST Sofia Starts Showing Her Colours
High Speed Transfers (HST) has posted a photo of its fast crew supply vessel HST Sofia taking shape at Damen Shipyards Antalya in Turkey.
HST Sofia, for which the two companies signed a contract in September 2018, represents the second FCS 2710 vessel HST ordered with Damen.
The new vessel, scheduled to be delivered this March, is being built to the same specifications as HST Hudson.
It will be able to accommodate 26 passengers, twice more than the previous FCS 2610 design, and to operate in wave heights of more than 2m due to an extra metre of freeboard.
Damen and HST also recently signed a contract for the delivery of a third FCS, to be named HST Harri.
HST Sofia and HST Harri will incorporate a few small layout changes to the working areas, but other original specifications will remain unchanged.
