First hydrofoil since Soviet era in construction at Russian Shipyard


The fact that the vessels are being constructed “symbolizes that building of rapid ships is starting to develop after experiencing a decline in the 1990s,” the source said.

“This is the first hydrofoil project since the Soviet times. It can carry 120 passengers. This is a new generation vessel for high-speed marine transportation.”

The vessels are being constructed at a Nizhny Novgorod shipyard in central Russia.
