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.
