Vessel type Info:
Hartman Marine Shipbuilding designed the "Trader 18" vessels to be the fastest in their class. Beacuase of the innovative hull desing
a cruising speed of 18 knots is possible. Other vessels in this class reach only 12 knots, the trader 18 is way faster with only a slight
increase in fuel costs. Fewer sailing days means less costs for the customer.
This "Trader 18" type won the prestigious Dutch "ship of the year" award in 2007. The versatility of the design,
the lifting capacity up to 240 tonnes with 24 metre outreach and shallow draught gives customers an unique combination
of features that even ten years later cannot be matched by competitors.
