Austal Hull 397 APT James

Auto Express 94

The 94 metre high-speed vehicle passenger ferry, an Austal Auto Express 94, is an all new aluminium catamaran that will carry 926 passengers and 250 cars at cruising speed of 37.5 knots (90%MCR), when it commences operation between the islands of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean Sea, in the second half of 2020.


The A.P.T. James is the very first vessel to be constructed at Austal's Vietnam shipyard located in Vung Tau. 

The ship will be operated by the National Infrastructure Development Company of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, providing high speed passenger and vehicle operations on the key 'sea bridge' between the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. The vessel is a derivative of the two 109 metre Auto Express ships designed and built in the last 4 years by Austal, following an intensive development program, and therefore incorporates many of the same design features which have made these vessels class leading.
