This 2009 concept has been produced by Hamworthy.
This cleaner RoPax looks actually veryclose from what could be a real RoPax in the Baltic Sea.
Why not a future Unity Line RoPax like this?

By the way... Do you remember / know the design that had already been contracted (on order) for Unity Line from Szczecin New Shipyard?...
It looked like this: http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/4308/pmtf9.jpg
Two units were intended to be built (TBN Piast and Patria).
The order was cancelled by the shipyard when it was forced by European Comission to close down on the grounds that it received "illegal" state support (while some yards in Europe, especially French
and German ones, still receive public support)...

Obviously - why not, and Hamworthy would certainly be happy to sell the design for this ferry, but if I am not wrong Hamworthy ship design division (which is based in Gdynia, Poland) is rather not
busy with developing and marketing ferry and other ship types designs. They are now rather focused on gas carriers (LPG tankers and others) and cargo handling plants for gas carriers and perhaps on
fuel feed gas handling systems for propulsion of various ships...
