EghtesadOnline: Iran joined the world club of fastcraft producers by delivering the first Iranian-made catamaran fast ferry, worth $10m, to a Turkish company on Wednesday.
The technology to make catamaran high-speed crafts (HSC) was limited only to six countries but the number has raised to seven after Iran successfully entered the club of fastcraft producers.
The vessel was officially delivered to the Turkish company during a ceremony which was attended by officials of the Iranian producing company and the Turkish side, IRNA reported.
Speaking at the end of the ceremony, the Turkish official said although Iran was under severe sanctions, it had been able to produce watercrafts having world standards.
The Iranian catamaran is a high-speed double-hulled passenger watercraft with an aluminum body.
