The world's largest carbon catamaran has arrived in the Dalmatian city of Split after making the journey all the way from Norway, writes daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
"Krilo Carbo" is the world's largest carbon passenger catamaran in the world and its owners hope that within just a few weeks it becomes one of the fastest methods of transport to the Dalmatian and Kvarner islands in Croatia.
"It is hard to say at this stage what routes we will travel, but we will be in competition for the Split-Jelsa, Split-Lastovo, Split-Vis and Rijeka-Mali Losinj routes," says Ivica Tomic, owner of Krilo Carbo, whose son Luka will be the catamaran's first captain.
Krilo Carbo will be able to accomodate 350 passengers, and the total costs for building the 90 ton catamaran was 7.5 million Euros.
Tomic says that with this catamaran the company is waiting for Croatia's entry into the European Union, when then he says they will not only be competition on the Croatian coast, but also for international routes.
