Hawaii-headquartered Matson has taken delivery of its first Kanaloa-class con-ro vessel.


The ship was christened Lurline at the General Dynamics NASSCO Shipyard in San Diego. It is the first of two sisterships being built at the yard for Matson.

Each con-ro (approximately 3,500 teu) has an enclosed garage with room for approximately 500 vehicles, plus space for rolling stock and breakbulk cargo. Each ship measures 265 m long, 34.7 m wide, with a draught of 11.6 m.

Lurline features a fuel-efficient hull design, environmentally safe double hull fuel tanks, fresh water ballast systems and Tier 3 dual-fuel engines.
