San Frangisk and San Pawl

Venezia Lines Air Cushion catamarans - San Frangisk and San Pawl - combine the most advanced characteristics of catamarans and hovercrafts.

Such a combination has resulted in vessels that extend:
 

  • Higher speed 
  • Lower fuel consumption 
  • Lower noise 
  • Less wave-making 
  • Higher manoeuvrability 
  • Higher passenger comfort and safety
     

The air cushion, set up by fans, and trapped by the hulls and the skirts, lifts the craft and reduces the draught. Thus, water resistance and power consumption are significantly reduced. The ship is highly manoeuvrable, and literally turns around "on a coin". It can even move sideways by diverting directional air from the cushion
