THE MARITIME EXECUTIVE | Matson and General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard celebrated the christened of one of the largest combination container/roll-on, roll-off ("con-ro") ships ever built in the United States. Named the Matsonia, and the second of two Kanaloa Class vessels, the ceremonies took place on July 2, 2020, at the NASSCO shipyard in San Diego, California.

The Matsonia will also be the fourth of four new vessels that Matson will have put into service between 2018 and 2020.
