KRASNODAR, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. High-speed direct sea passage is in prospect between the Russian port of Anapa in the southern Krasnodar region and the Crimean port of Kerch.
The first trial voyage on the sea-going 40-meter catamaran Sochi-1 is scheduled for March 26, the region's administration told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
Sochi-1 is a double-deck vessel with glassed-in passenger salons opening on a panoramic view and fitted with comfortable seats, bar counters, radio and television. The vessel can embark 300 passengers and reach a flowing speed of 63 kilometers an hour (34 knots).
“Now, citizens and visitors of Anapa, the main location of children’s holiday camps, do not need to go to the district ferryboat port to reach Crimea,” an administration official said.
Crossings between the two central ports will be operational from April 1, making two journeys a day in each direction.
