New cargo-passenger ship to serve Keelung-Matsu route

Premier Jiang Yi-huah and his wife on Monday, March 3, 2014 presided over the ceremonial christening and launching of a new cargo-passenger ship that will sail between Taiwan and Matsu later this year. The 5,000-ton "Taima Star" was slowly transferred to the water after Jiang's wife, Li Shu-chen, smashed a bottle of wine against the bow of the vessel at the ceremony held in Kaohsiung. Built by Kaohsiung-based Jade Yachts Shipbuilding Co. at a cost of NT$1.44 billion (US$47.5 million), the ship is 104 meters long and 16 meters wide and can carry up to 646 passengers, 28 cars and three mid-size buses or one large-size bus. It is equipped with a special zone for women, a cinema, a chess room and disabled-friendly facilities. "Taima Star" is expected to begin service by the end of this year, sailing between the northern port of Keelung and the outlying island of Matsu. Source : Focus Taiwan
