Many thanks for this interesting information on the development of your design, it is much appreciated.

Best regards,

Jo / Keith

many thanks yours

The ship is a design which we initially worked on jointly with IHI Marine in Japan. We gave them our specific requirements which were namely to have a ship which was
a) maximum 36.5 mtrs beam
b) maximum 229 mtrs loa
c) 7 holds 7 hatches
and out of these requirements how shallow could they design a vessel. The reasons for the above were
1) we noticed from our research that in order to have the maximum flexibility within the typical panamax bulker trades, we could not exceed 36.5 mtrs beam due to the outreach of the vessel loaders and unloaders as well as some port restrictions in various typical panamax ports with the obvious exception of the panama canal.
2) 229 mtrs loa is the maximum loa allowed in Port Kamsar in Guinea which these ships would have an excellent lift out of on the prevailing draft
3)Unlike the previous post panamax designs which were typically for dedicated Japanese utility coal trades and therefore 5 holds / 5 hatches, we wanted a 7 hold 7 hatch vessel specifically to give the vessel the flexibility to trade grains and especially to have a large lift up the River Plate.

The ships are able to load all the normal panamax cargoes such as iron ore, coal, bauxite, grains, coke, petcoke etc.

The design is named Future 87 which was something IHI and ourselves agreed was a suitable name for these vessels which are a world first.

As a foot note - we built all of them with double hulls.

Thank you for sharing this nice photo and description. If I could ask you a few questions about her:

1) What would her typical crew complement be?
2) What types of cargoes, other than alumina, would she normally carry? Would it be coal, iron ore, and grain?
3) Who designed her? Is it a design that is owned by the shipyard, or is it a design that you own?
4) Do these types of vessels ever have bow thrusters?

Thanks and best regards,
Jo (JNB)
