    Cruise ship Mustay Karim returns from successful sea trials

    Mustay Karim, cruise ship built by Nizhny Novgorod based Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard (a company of United Shipbuilding Corporation), has returned from her sea trials held on 15-20 November 2019 in the water area of Gorky water reservoir near the town of Chkalovsk in the Nizhny Novgorod Region, Krasnoye Sormovo says in a press release.

    “Sea trials are among the key phases in construction of any ship intended for checking the performance of all systems in different situations at sea, – comments Mikhail Pershin, General Director of Krasnoye Sormovo PJSC. – The experience we obtained while testing the Mustay Karim is unique for Russian shipbuilders. Now we commence the ship outfitting and bringing all the characteristics to the required level”.

    The ship is currently undergoing her mooring trials. All the construction phases proceed according to the schedule. The delivery is scheduled for February 2020. Prior to the delivery the ship of PV300 design will undergo the final test to recheck all the systems.

    The vessel is being built under the tripartite contract signed in January 2017 by USC, Mashpromleasing (earlier known as Goznak-Leasing) and shipping company Vodohod. The cruise ship was launched on 11 September 2019.

    The four-deck cruise liner of Project PV300 is designed to accommodate 329 passengers in comfortable cabins for two persons (there are seven cabins for three persons – two adults and one child) of 17 to 46 square meters.  

    The ship will work at the Moscow - St. Petersburg, Moscow - Astrakhan and Moscow - Rostov-on-Don lines. Accommodation with five-star hotel infrastructure will be provided. There is a restaurant with a total number of places equivalent to the number of passengers, conference rooms (140 places), three bars, children's room, beauty salon, souvenir shop, fitness salon and a solarium on the open sun deck (700 square meters). Lifts connecting all decks, communications and toilets, enlarged passageways and absence of obstacles for wheelchairs are foreseen for physically challenged people. 
     
    PV300 ship is a modern cruise liner for the river and the coastal water of RF which will give the chance to make a water journey along the chosen route through the European part of the country. During the voyage vessel should call the ports where walking and bus excursions to cultural, historical, natural sights and coastal resort zones are organized. All types of leisure activities will be offered onboard the ship: bars, discos, sun bath, swimming in the pool, fitness, walks through vessel's open spaces or conversation with a wine glass in a hand, viewing beauty of coast, screening of movies or performances, visiting performance of actors or famous people, listening of lectures, participating in work of creative teams, communication with friends or just relaxing in a cabin with a French balcony.
     
    The PV300 concept will work at the line Moscow - St. Petersburg, and also at lines Moscow - Rostov-on-Don - Sevastopol - Sochi, Astrakhan - the ports of the Caspian Sea; so due to Marine Engineering Bureau classification, this vessel is of the "Volga-Don Max" class.
     
    For the usual "Volga-Don Max" vessels of the existing projects (projects 301 and 302) the number of passengers for the case of modern cabins makes 200-220. On the new PV300 concept with the same overall dimensions it is possible to arrange comfortably about 300-350 passengers.

    Passenger cabins are located in the middle vertical zone on 4 superstructure decks. Cabins on three upper decks have own balconies with sliding sections that provide through deck pass at emergency situations.
     
    All passenger cabins are equipped with double beds, lavatory and douche, air-conditioner, wardrobe, safe, TV set with satellite and internal vessel's channels, hairdryer, sockets 220V and 110V, wireless Internet (Wi-Fi), vessel's radio translation, external and internal telephone connection.

    The vessel’s power plant consists of two diesel engines, 1,200 kW each; and auxiliary unit consisting of three 760kW diesel generators; emergency diesel generator of 214 kW; and a boiler-plant consisting of one 800kW thermal boiler and three heat recovery boiler of 170 kW each.
