In succession to their famous passenger liners Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, Cunard Line has developed plans for another fast ocean liner, Queen Mary 2, the first to be built since Queen Elizabeth 2 over 30 years ago. MARIN studied the main features of this new vessel which is designed to serve a scheduled highspeed North Atlantic line service of six days duration. The building contract has been awarded to the French shipyard Alstom Chantiers de l'Atlantique.
