m.v. YOUTA MARU

205,000FT3 REEFER SHIP BUILT 2022

LATEST ULTRA-LOW TEMP REEFER THAT KEEPS SEAFOOD FRESH

YOUTA MARU is Kyokuyo's newest ultra-low temperature refrigerated cargo ship, sharing the same hull design as reefer/processor OCEAN STAR. While keeping the gross tonnage under 5,000tons, the younger vessel has a larger holds and fuel oil tanks capacity, and is equipped with a refrigerating system capable of handling both -50℃ and -30℃.

Other notable features include her "non-ballast" design that requires no sea water ballast, and a PBCF - Propeller Bos Cap Fins - that improves fuel efficiency.

YOUTA MARU was ordered by Koo's Shipping, a leader in the Taiwanese Reefer Transport Industry. We are very happy and proud of their choice of placing the order for a new ship from Kyokuyo, given the fact that although there are many Japanese-built reefers in service for Taiwan, most of them were purchased second-hand.
