Waterbus composite ferry

The waterbus concept is built around flexibility in configurations which can be changed even when production has already started. To date, this one of these ferries can be seen cruising the waters of Antwerp. 

Why are composites used here?

Lightweight
The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.
