This 85-foot fiber-built boat will feature the latest cooling system, allowing it to transport cargo at various temperatures, enhancing its versatility. The vessel is designed to facilitate the delivery of essential supplies to various regions across the country.

Ahmed Ihsan, the Managing Director of Boatrain, emphasized the boat's strength, speed, and market efficiency, thanks to its state-of-the-art hull design. He expressed that the Magnum2 stands as a testament to Boatrain's commitment to advancing the maritime industry.

The Magnum2 is poised to significantly outpace the current MHA cargo vessels in both capacity and speed.

The design of Magnum2 reflects Boatrain's proactive approach to the evolving maritime sector.

Sofwan Ahmed, the Managing Director of MHA, highlighted the vessel's objective of increasing the accessibility of MHA products nationwide and expanding the company's market reach. The Magnum2 is expected to enable timely deliveries to customers across the atolls, catering to those who seek prompt access to goods.
