Rodman reasserts its leadership in the building of passenger catamarans, delivering a new unit of its Rodman 100 model.
Rodman successfully delivers, to the Balearic shipping Company Trasmapi, a new unit of the Passenger Catamaran Rodman 100. This is the third vessel of this same model built for this Owner. The Migjorn Jet, as this new boat has been named, maintains the main characteristics of the units of this same model preceding her, but improves performance, functionality and design lines. With a length overall of 30 m., the Rodman 100 has been built in Spain under the International Code of Safety for High Speed Crafts (HSC Code) and can accommodate 329 The evolution implemented in this new unit has made it possible to define, adapt and design spaces in a more efficient manner to meet the operational needs, so demanding and specific on high-speed routes, thus offering a more effective and better quality model. Outstanding is the new line of the bow, with a significant reduction in the lightweight per passenger, a more technologically efficient, more advanced model built with state-of-the-art materials that have improved the design, increasing seaworthiness and safety. Thanks to process optimisation and the use of new materials, the performance of this unit has been improved compared to previous units. Like her predecessor units, the Migjorn Jet is a reference in sustainability by using in building infusion lamination techniques that prevent the emission of gases. There are also improvements in the exterior design and interior arrangement to enhance the feeling of comfort and experience of the trip. This is the third catamaran of this model delivered to Trasmapi in less than four years and the seventh boat delivered to this Owner.

A reference in the innovative and efficient building of catamarans Over the last few years, Rodman has designed, built and delivered different types of catamarans, not only passenger catamarans, but also for other uses, such as hydrographic and research catamarans or offshore wind farm support catamaran vessels. La experiencia adquirida en este tipo de construcciones, sitúa a Rodman, como uno de los astilleros de referencia a nivel europeo en este tipo de embarcaciones. Por lo que se refiere al diseño y construcción de catamaranes de pasajeros, bajo el código NGV 2000 y la implementación de tecnologías de fabricación de última generación, Rodman se sitúa como líder indiscutible en nuestro país. The experience achieved in this type of shipbuilding makes Rodman one of the leading European yards for this type of vessel. Regarding the design and building of passenger catamarans, under the HSC 2000 Code and the implementation of state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, Rodman is the undisputed leader in our country.
