“Bai Shi Ling”, Hainan’s largest luxury Ro-Pax passenger ship, made its maiden voyage by commuting between Haikou and Hai’an across the Qiongzhou Strait on 10th January 2014.

The ship, constructed by the Hainan Strait Shipping Co., Ltd. with an investment of 130 million yuan, is 123.9 meters long and 20.5 meters wide.

With a gross tonnage of 2,105 tons, the ship features a 3-storey vehicle hold loading capacity of 999 seats for passengers. The ship also boasts the strength of withstanding level 8 gale force winds.

The ship’s communal areas include such luxuries as a supermarket, escalators, a children’s playroom, a leisure bar and a cafeteria.

To meet the traffic demands ahead of the Chinese New Year holiday, three more ro-ro passenger ships will be put into operation. The ships will depart every 3 hours from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm.
