Aluminium Boats Australia Building One2Three Designed 35M Passenger Ferry for Cat Cocos - Seychelles
Inter-Island Boats who operate under the Cat Coco’s brand have placed an order with Aluminium Boats Australia for a One2three designed 35m catamaran, for use on their ferry runs between Male, Praslin and La Digue islands.
One2three have optimised the hull to suit the additional passengers and cargo resulting in significant fuel savings over their existing fleet. The new hull has a shape that is also suitable for the offshore nature of the route, and it will be fitted with a Humphree interceptor ride control system to further enhance the sea keeping and passenger comfort.
Powered by twin MTU 16V2000 M72 engines at 1440 BkW with ZF 4540 gearboxes driving conventional propellers the vessel service speed is 27 knots at 70% MCR and a full load speed of 31 knots. This is the sixth 35m One2three-designed passenger catamaran ABA have built in the past 3 years.
