CTS Parkview Ferry Services has ordered five more 45-metre TriCat ferries from FBM Marine, the Isle of Wight-based shipbuilder and subsidiary of the Hong Kong Parkview Group. The ferries will operate on the Hong Kong-Macau route, carrying 318 passengers at speeds of more than 47 knots and covering the 37 nautical miles in 45 minutes. The order follows delivery of three TriCats this year, with two more to come this month. The TriCats style and speed have made them popular in comparison with the other vessels.
