Incat Crowther contracted to design a 32m catamaran ferry for Ishigaki Dream Tours.

Super Dream will be built by Richardson Devine Marine and will be the second Incat Crowther/RDM vessel for the operator, after 2008’s Premium Dream.

Super Dream will be powered by a pair of Caterpillar C32 ACERT main engines, which will drive a pair of NICO island-mounted gearboxes. Propulsion will be by 5-bladed fixed-pitch propellers. The vessel will have a service speed of 30knots, with a maximum speed of 32 knots.

As with Premium Dream, the new vessel will be designed and built to JG rules, with structure designed to Class NK. Part of Incat Crowther’s expertise is working closely with government agencies and classification societies to negate any potential non-compliance issues.

The new vessel will be a modern interpretation of the previous vessel, with the addition of Incat Crowther’s latest hull form and a sleek, single passenger deck superstructure.

Super Dream will have flexible boarding arrangements, primarily a pair of large doors fitted at amidships. A gate and transfer steps will be fitted on the centerline of the bow, whilst the aft deck gates will be supplemented by a wheelchair ramp on the starboard side. Additionally, a gate will be fitted to the upper deck starboard, allowing for docking with higher wharves.

The main passenger cabin seats 197 passengers, with accessibility for disabled passengers given significant consideration, with dedicated wheelchair storage, access ramp and seats. A kiosk sits at the aft end of the main deck. Passenger comfort will be enhanced by a built-in window washing system that ensures windows can be quickly and easily cleaned prior to each tour.
