Description
This is a model based on several of the cross-channel ferries that operated on the English Channel, with inspiration taken from the SS Newhaven, SS Paris, SS Dieppe, and other passenger ships built around the early 20th century, and the various stats are based on these vessels.

At 78m long, these ferries fit and park properly in the game's passenger and freight terminals and come complete with aging and tinting. Passengers will also crowd the decks as the ship's load increases.

The model and textures are modifications of the vanilla game's Zoroaster ship model.

Available: 1884-1939
Lifespan: 50 years
Top Speed: 47 kph
Weight: 1774T
Power: 5220kW
Capacity: 75 Passengers
Length: 78m

I really enjoy using this ship. It carries as much people as the stock vessel from that starting point (Fronternac?) but travels double the speed, making it much more viable on routes and easier to build traffic. The one downside is that after it expires in 1939, none of the stock ships approach its speed except for the hovercraft. By that point, though, the other ship's increased capacities help make up for the lower speeds. Love this model, and I hope to see some later-era ships to compliment it.

This looks great and fits in well with the scenery

UPDATE: Minor texture and geometry update to fix a few minor issues that were bugging me.

UPDATE: Fixed some of the textures on the funnel to make them less shiny, added a few more crew members to the bridge and moved around some of the passenger anchors to fill out the decks a bit more rather than have everyone at the railing.

Самый лучший большой корабль конца 19 века! На мой субъективный взгляд Лучше чем «Кампания» - британский пассажирский лайнер, принадлежавший компании «Кунард Лайн». Слишком большая!

Thank you for making a beautiful, usable ship. There are so few options during the late 1800-mid 1900's for north american campaigns.

This is a lovely model and very much appreciated by those of us who are ship aficionados. One of my savegames has a very long ferry route where two rivers connect most of the towns and I freely admit to having tweaked the top speed up to Blue Riband territory of about 36 knots!

Oh my! This is wonderful! Nice to have a faster ferry appropriate for longer voyages than those small river-based paddle boats which look ridiculous on vast bodies of water. Thank you very much for your excellent work! :)

Its very nice, bit not my scene for modern era. I would like to see a 1987 Sealink ferry or one of the Townsend Thoreson Free Enterprise Ferries I used from Dover. Wierd as it seems, I actually sailed on the "Herald of Free Enterprise" back in about 1977 1980, before it tragically went down outside the port Of Zeebruge in 1987. 2 miles out of Zeebruge we saw ships rear doors already wide open with workers standing on the rear open deck. A disaster waiting to happen I thought?
