Incat Crowther presented the design of a 30-metre Catamaran Ro-Pax Ferry for operation in Turkey. The vessel represents a new generation of ro-pax ferry that is simple and cost-effective in both construction and operation.
The 30m catamaran features an aft vehicle deck with stern ramp. The main passenger cabin has 100 seats, two bathrooms and a bar. There is also luggage storage under the stairs to the upper deck.
The upper deck features a walk-around wheelhouse with direct foredeck access, a rescue tender and 24 outdoor seats.
The Cat will also feature Incat Crowther’s new generation hull form, as proven on Incat Crowther’s latest workboats and now filtering through into Incat Crowther’s ferry range. The result of the development work on this hull form speaks for itself, with recent launchings like Limitless and James Grant setting new benchmarks for speed and efficiency.
The vessel will be powered by twin Doosan 4V222TI main engines (each producing 647 kW) and will be able to achieve a cruising speed of 23 knots. The top speed will be 25 knots.
