Macao's Flashy Ferries
This vividly colored catamaran is the first of ten 47.5 meter passenger catamarans that will operate as high speed ferries taking pleasure-seeking passengers from Hong Kong to the luxury gaming area of Macao. The catamarans have a speed of 42 knots and can carry more than 400 passengers. They are going to be busy. The popularity of the island Las Vegas is growing rapidly, the Hong Kong to Macao trek is currently the world's largest route in terms of passenger numbers and will only go up as more and more lavish hotels are opened in the area. Last year, the Hong Kong to Macao route saw 14.3 million passengers.
