The vessel was designed by independent naval architect René van der Velden and includes floor-to-ceiling windows. The new KD Luxusliner is designed to host parties, events, concerts, cruises and meetings with up to 1,000 passengers and is due for delivery in May 2020.

De Hoop has ordered an electrical systems package from Alewijnse Marine and Droste Elektro. The two companies are working together to outfit the vessel with NavCom and electrical systems.

Droste is set to handle primary electrical engineering and delivery of main power distribution, emergency and shore-line connection switchboards and the overall integration of the complete alarm and databus control system. Meanwhile, Alewijnse will deliver and install all power and lighting distribution panels, internal and external communications systems and will handle all cabling. Systems include nautical equipment, bridge systems, alarm systems etc. and range from CCTV and searchlights to fire detection.

Patrick Janssens, CEO of Shipyard De Hoop, says: "The combination of Droste and Alewijnse is perfect for this project in both time and technology. Both companies have a longstanding relationship with our yard and together we can deliver the vessel on time and guarantee a high level of quality for our customer."

De Hoop is scheduled to deliver the vessel in May 2020.
