TESS series

The name TESS means “Tsuneishi Economical Standard Ship”. The hull form was developed to deliver the highest standards of propulsion, steering, stability and other performance parameters to match the needs of ship owners and the changing times. The ship has a reputation for being easy to handle, and has had the support from ship owners both at home and abroad for near 30 years.



Our latest model, the TESS58, is an “eco ship” that employs energy-saving technologies in its hull design, electronically controlled engine, reduced wind resistance, and other features. Aside from its improved propulsion performance in still water, the TES58 performs well in actual seas even while maintaining high fuel efficiency.
