Australian Cat for Bahamas

Friday, March 20, 2009

The Bahamas Ferries (www.bahamasferries.com) recently took delivery of a 134.5 ft by 39 ft catamaran, the Bo Hengy II, from Aluminum Marine of Queensland. Built to a design by Oceanic Yacht Design, also of Queensland, the boat has a 28-knot top speed and the dramatic looks to go with it. The vessels semi-swath hull design combined with good clearance of the bridge between the hulls, allows the high speeds to be maintained in heavy sea conditions.

The propulsion package combines two Cummins KTA 38 M2 engines and two Cummins QSK19 M engines so that each hull has a 760 HP 19-liter and a 1200 HP 38-liter engine. All four engines are turning props through Reintjes gears. With a total of just under 4000 HP the Bo Hengy II burns only about 300 litres per hour.

With a capacity for 400 passengers the Bo Hengy II can also carry two cars on the after deck. An 8000-liter fuel capacity gives the vessel a 600-mile range. The Bo Hengy II is classed under Lloyds as +100 A1 SSC, Passenger Catamaran, HSC G2.
