Commissioned on March 24, the 154 ft. fast ferry Iyanough is now servicing nearly 400 passengers on each of its eight daily trips between Hyannis and Nantucket, Massachusetts. For the safety of the ship and its passengers, Iyanough is equipped with a night/day vision system from Night Vision Technologies (NVTi).
The aluminum catamaran was designed by Australia-based Incat-Crowther and built by Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding of Somerset, Mass. NVTi dealer MacDougall's Cape Cod Marine Services in Falmouth, Mass. assisted with the sale and installation of the 3000 series night vision system for Iyanough.
Incorporating a color camera, low light camera and AS thermal imager, the NVTi 3000 series allows Iyanough's operators to remotely monitor the ferry's surroundings in a variety of light and environmental conditions. This robust unit uses a corrosion-proof polycarbonate pan and tilt housing, along with stainless steel hardware, gears and components.
