Sea trials underway for shuttle service catamaran

Monaco One is a 12m power catamaran designed and built by Advanced Aerodynamic Vessel in La Rochelle, France. She can accommodate up to 12 passengers and, says her builders, thanks to an innovative aerodynamic design, fuel consumption has been halved, even when cruising at speeds of over 40 knots.

Sea trials are currently underway, after which Monaco One will be transferred by cargo to her home port in Monaco. Here she will provide Monaco Ports’ exclusive shuttle service catamaran service for Cala del Forte.

The catamaran’s arrival in the Principality is scheduled for the second half of February, when the boat will be officially handed over to Ports of Monaco. Once the formalities have been completed and after the official christening, Monaco One will begin operating in between Monaco and Cala del Forte. Guests of the ports will be allowed to travel between the two marinas in just 15 minutes.
