Cruise ship and car ferry

JMU passenger liners and ferries satisfy high speed and other customer needs, and are actively used in Japan and overseas.

JMU has constructed many large-scale, high speed ferries that are used in regular service in Japan, and has also constructed luxury cruise liners. We have a proven record with the Super Slender Twin Hull (SSTH) type super-high speed ferry, which was developed by JMU, and are developing a new next-generation car ferry with excellent fuel economy in response to customer demand.

High speed car ferry

SUZURAN, SUISEN

Among monohull type ferries, the "Suzuran" and "Suisen" are Japan's fastest large-scale, long-distance ferries. By greatly shortening transportation time, the development of high speed ferries has greatly affected maritime logistics between Japan's western Kansai region and the northern island of Hokkaido.
