Samsung Heavy Industries said Sunday it would deliver a 30,000 ton-class large-scale passenger ship to Minoan Lines Monday after completing construction of the ship for the Greek company at a cost of $80 million.

It is the first time that a local shipbuilder has built a passenger vessel of over 30,000 tons.
