Pasha Hawaii Takes Delivery of 2nd Jones Act ConRo
Honolulu-based shipping company Pasha Hawaii has taken delivery of the MV Marjorie C, a combination Container and Roll-on/Roll-off Car Truck Carrier (ConRo), from Pascagoula-headquartered VT Halter Marine, a shipbuilding subsidiary of VT Systems.
The MV Marjorie C is the second U.S. Flag, Jones Act-qualified vessel built for Pasha Hawaii and will join her sister ship, the MV Jean Anne, providing additional service to Hawaii via the Hawaii/Mainland trade lane.
The 692 feet long MV Marjorie C has a vehicle shipping capacity of 1,100 units, the ability to carry 1,400 TEUs above and under deck, and over-high/over-wide cargoes on ten workable decks.
The sister vessel, Jean Anne, was Pasha Hawaii’s first Jones Act vessel and has been serving the Hawaii/Mainland trade since March 2005.
