ĄDoes the Jetfoil require the specific pier facilities?
|Passengers can embark on or disembark from the main deck (1st floor) at any sea level where the pontoon type piers are provided. Where the normal fixed type piers are provided, passengers can also easily embark on or disembark by gangway from the main deck (1st floor) or the upper deck (2nd floor : option) or the aft exposed deck (middle floor) depending on sea level and the height of the pier. The conventional hydrofoil needs some facilities to keep the hull away from a pier due to the foils protruding both side of the hull, but the Jetfoil having no protrusion does not need such facilities. The Jetfoil can be moored to a normal pier with air fenders (1.5mdia. ).|
