The Millennium Diamond catamaran built in Croatia has left the northern Adriatic town of Pula on its way to London where it will be the largest catamaran used during the Olympic games to ferry tourists on the Thames, reports daily newspaper Glas Istre.
British company City Cruises will take ownership of the catamaran when it arrives in London next week. The catamaran is being taken to London on board freight ship "Gloria".
Millennium Diamond is 37 meters long, 17.5 meters wide and can transport 600 passengers. It has two 500 horse power motors and can cruise at speeds of 12 knots. City Cruises paid 3.5 million pounds for the catamaran to be built and gave it the name Millennium Diamond because of its similarity to a diamond, and also because of the millennial anniversary of the royal dynasty in the UK.
