We do build newbuildings in my company as well, at Chienese yards, who have larger capacity and for the new Panama canal dimensions. To keep the length at 200 meters, which we do as well, is is to avoid tugs etc at Kanda strait in Japan. I have no doubt that K-Line have studied and designed efficient vessels, I merly noted that they look "old fashioned". That a vessel today is fitted with scrubber is all well and good, but to say in 2016 that they are a jump forward,is perhaps strecthing it :-) Even thou if you mean the "whole package".

This is one of the new wider beamed PTCC's that most of the major car carrying lines are now getting built. These will fit through the new Panama Canal locks, and should be more stable than the standard 32m beamed ones that were standard in the past. They keep the 200 metre Length to fit many loading docks in Japan. This is the first from the Japan Marine United Ariake yard, with 5 more to follow. Two other close sisters , "Hamburg Highway" and "Hawaiian Highway" have been built by the Shin Kurushima yard at Onishi with 2 more to follow. These designs are meant to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% compared to conventional PTCCs, have scrubbers to reduce NOx and SOx. They may look similar to conventional PTCCs , but they are a jump forward.

Classical Japanese built for Japanese owners; conventional lifeboat arrangements, open bridge wings. Nothing wrong with that, but for 2016 one would perhaps expect some other inovations as well? Perhaps those are not visible. Hull shape looks very good, and pretty sure she will make money for K-Line. Perhaps in line with the slogan: "Don't change a working model". Big engine/high speed according data given here. 20 knots on a car carrier?
