NDO – A high-speed boat, Super Bien Dong, which will ferry passengers to Ly Son Island in Quang Ngai province was launched on April 11, shortening the travel time from the mainland to the island from 75 minutes to 35 minutes.

The boat was built by the Shipbuilding Company 189 under the Ministry of Defence at a cost of US$1 million.

The 139-seater boat is fitted with the latest safety regulations for navigation and has an average speed of 30 knots per hour. It will be officially put into operation at the end of April.

The construction of the Super Bien Dong was completed six months ahead of schedule, and it is the most state-of-the-art vessel on the sea route linking Ky Ha port with Ly Son Island.

According to Chairman of Ly Son district People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh, there are currently 11 boats bringing visitors to Ly Son Island. The launch of the new vessel aims to renovate the fleet and better serve visitors to the island.
