24m Catamaran Ferry Delivered by Incat Crowther

Wednesday, August 24, 2011
Fantasea Sunrise

Incat Crowther is pleased to announce the launch, trials and delivery of the 24m Catamaran Ferry Fantasea Sunrise.


In June, Incat Crowther announced the sale of the vessel to prominent Great Barrier Reef operator Fantasea Cruises. Since that announcement, Brisbane shipyard Aluminium Marine has tailored the vessel for Fantasea’s operation, including interior lounges and the application of striking graphics inside and out. Fantasea Sunrise is fitted with 119 seats in the main deck cabin and 38 lounges seats in the upper deck cabin. A large bar/kiosk has been installed aft in the main deck cabin. Three toilets, one of which is wheelchair accessible, are located on the aft main deck, whilst an additional toilet is located on the upper deck. The vessel has undergone successful sea trials which proved the virtues of Incat Crowther’s highly efficient and stable hull form. Powered by a pair of Yanmar 6AYM-GTE main engines, the vessel sets new standards for fuel efficiency, providing good cruising speed with low capital costs and modest running expenses.


Fantasea Sunrise comfortably exceeded her contracted loaded service speed of 25 knots, and achieved a top speed in excess of 28 knots. As well as being efficient, the latest-generation hull form provides a very stable platform, offering greater passenger comfort and sea keeping, which is ideal for the offshore route it will be utilised on.
