Pasha announces specs on second ship bound for Hawaii service

Pasha Hawaii announced the design specifications for the second cargo ship it plans to bring into trans-Pacific service in 2013.

At 692 feet in length the Marjorie C will be more than 100 feet longer than the M/V Jean Anne currently in service between Hawaii and the West Coast, Pasha said in a news release.

With the second vessel, Pasha will increase the frequency of its sailings — both interisland and to the mainland — to once a week.

The Marjorie C is being built by VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Miss. The ship will be a combination container and roll-on/roll-off car truck carrier. The Marjorie C will be 692 feet long, with the ability to carry 1,500 20-foot containers above and under deck, as well as 2,750 vehicles on 10 decks.

Pasha entered the Hawaii market with the 579-foot MV Jean Anne in 2005. Pasha said it also signed an option for the construction of a third vessel.
