Albayzin is available for sale on an "As is / Where is" basis.


Originally built to Det Norske Veritas Class DNV +1A1 HSLC R1 Passenger Car Ferry A EO at the Bazan San Fernando shipyard (hull number 315), Albayzin was the first of three Mestral Class sisterships.

Albayzin features an aluminum alloy deep-V hull form and longitudinally, the vessel is divided into eight watertight compartments under the vehicle deck. 

Albayzin offers capacity for 450 passengers and up to 84 cars although, should higher capacity be required, it is noted that sisterships subsequently had passenger capacity increased up to 590 passengers.


Albayzin is powered by four Caterpillar 3616 medium speed engines each rated at 5,400 kW.  The engines drive four KaMeWa waterjets through a Voith gearbox.  The outboard waterjets are utilized for steering and the inboard waterjets serve as booster jets when operating at high speed.

Parts have been removed from two of the four main engines and will not be recovered.
