KHERSON HYDROFOIL VESSEL GOT SECOND LIFE
After twenty-four years break a hydrofoil vessel Polissya-5 set off from Kherson to Hola Prystan. Now it is possible to get from one point to another in 15 minutes. The vessel will run 3-5 times a day. The ticket price is UAH30. The passenger-carrying capacity is 50 people.
'The vessel was built in 1988 that’s why it required a lot of efforts to arrange it. It was renovated, fixed, painted and certified', Dmytro Vlasov, businessman who brought this project to life, says.
According to the businessman Polissya-5 is currently unique vessel to conduct regular voyages. Dmytro plans to fix another similar vessel and launch it on Kherson-Nova Kakhovka route by the next year.
