A glorious throaty roar from the exhausts signals we are in full throttle mode as the dual 1,300 hp Cummins KTA38 engines pour on the power, punching the vessel through the swells on the South China Sea. The smiling skipper of Super Bien Dong 2 gives the thumbs up as he unleashes the 38-litre V16 Cummins engines, knowing he can hit 30-plus knots if he wishes. Two of the new 32-metre ferries entered service in December 2018 while the third was due to begin operating late in 2019.
