    Incat announces construction of a 35m Catamaran Passenger Ferry for Samso Rederi

    Incat Crowther has announced construction of a 35m Catamaran Passenger Ferry for Samso Rederi in Denmark.

    The Incat Crowther 35 will operate between the Aarhus and the island of Samso, an island of natural beauty sitting off the Jutland Peninsula.

    The intention of the new operation is to bolster tourism and trade between the island and the mainland. Community planning reports a new passenger ferry service with proper execution will bring greater economic benefit to the community.

    As such, Incat Crowther was charged with developing an economically responsible solution. The vessel is optimized for high durability, low maintenance and efficient operation, whilst delivering a high level of passenger comfort and amenity.

    The vessel will accommodate 296 passengers internally over two decks.

    Passengers will board the vessel at one of three boarding stations on each side of the main deck; aft, midship and foredeck. The main deck features a large aft deck with double-decker racks for 60 bicycles. The main passenger cabin accommodates 180 passengers. Toilet facilities are located in the aft of the cabin, forward of which is a fully-featured kiosk. Adjacent to the midship boarding area is a pair of luggage racks. Areas of the main deck cabin are designated as being pet-friendly and specifically for kids. An additional 11 bikes can be stowed on the foredeck.

    The upper deck cabin seats 116, with a bathroom for passengers and a dedicated bathroom for crew located forward. The open aft upper deck has 44 seats in addition to the rated passenger capacity, offering passengers freedom to move inside and out at safely designated times.

    The vessel will be powered by a pair of MAN D2862 LE463 main engines, each producing 1029kW. She will operate at 25 knots at a modest MCR to reduce load on the engines and reduce maintenance intervals. Maximum speed will be 29.5 knots. The Incat Crowther hulls have been designed specifically for high efficiency and low fuel burn.

    The vessel will be built to BV rules and flagged under the Danish Maritime Authority.
