ABSTRACT
The article presents information relating to the FastShip Atlantic vessel design. The concept and preliminary design has now been around for some 20 years or more, but no such vessel has been built for either commercial or military purposes. In short, it would be uneconomical for commercial purposes and unacceptable for strategic sealift purposes. The FastShip Atlantic design is optimized for high-speed use between the East Coast of the United States and the west coast of continental Europe, delivering 10,000 tons of containerized cargo between the two. The theory is that there is a middle market for transport that is quicker than conventional shipping yet cheaper than air transport.
