The MV Ma Lisha is worth some $2.5 billion USD 12.7 million and was constructed in India after a contract was signed between the Trans-port and Harbours Department (T&HD), Guyana, and Indian company, Gar-den Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited (GRSE) back in January 2021.

The APT James was built by Australian company Austal at a cost of around US$73 million.

The 94 metre, high-speed catamaran ferry can carry up to 926 passengers, including crew, and up to 250 cars, and can travel up to 37.5 knots. The ship also features Austal’s MarineLink Smart technology.

Financing for the vessel was done via Australia’s Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (EFIC).

There are now four vessels serving the seabridge—the T&T Spirit, the Jean De La Valette, the Galleons Passage and the Cabo Star cargo vessel.

The Buccoo Reef is one of two new vessels ordered by the Government for the inter-island seabridge.

Another high speed catamaran has been ordered from Australian shipbuilder Austal and is also slated for delivery this year.

The Austal ferry cost US$73.5 million while the Incat vessel cost US$72.9 million.

Guyana ferry was built to carry containers and cargo, vehicles and trucks as well as passengers.

Trini ferry cannot carry cargo. It's only made for passengers.

The 94- by 26-metre A.P.T. James was designed by Austal Australia to be used to transport both vehicles and passengers at high speeds between the islands of Trinidad and Tobago via a government-licenced “sea bridge” route. The ferry is of all-aluminium construction and has capacity for 926 passengers and up to 250 cars, though the onboard cargo decks may allow the carriage of a total of only 222 cars to free up a combined 90 lane metres for other freight.
