Cloud X "Cloud Ten" For Sale
View Specs Below.
SWATH Vessel 365 Passenger 27 Knots
SWATH ships are beamy. The beam of the Cloud X at 59.3 ft. is almost half its length (123.1 ft),
so deck utilization is much better than the conventional long narrow decks. Its beaminess requires less pier space than a conventional vessel of equivalent tonnage.
These advantages make it a good choice for:
Commercial day ferry: During its six month service from West Palm Beach, FL to Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, passengers were quite pleased with the ride and the amenities, with many repeat passengers. If only the ridership were as good as the ride she'd still be plying the route.
Megayacht: With the good seakeeping, over 4714 square feet of main deck and over 3370 square feet of upper deck, the Cloud X could be refitted as a luxurious, sleek megayacht.
Oil rig crew boat: The SWATH design has been selected by Trico Marine Services as the design of choice to accommodate their needs for high-speed transportation of offshore rig personnel to and from platforms in the rough waters of Campos Basin on the coast of Brazil. The cost of flying crew by helicopter and risk attached to this operation made companies like Trico to look closely at ship designs that could operate in sea conditions that would prevent conventional supply ships to sail and be economical enough to run. The M/V Cloud X would be an ideal crew boat. It is certificated to carry 365 passengers with baggage and cargo. The vessel range is 200 nm and was certified by United States Coast Guard to operate in seas up to 4.0 meters.
