(Press Release)
Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Incat Crowther announced the delivery of two 35m Catamaran Passenger Ferries built by Afai Southern Shipyard in China.

 

Hai Ju and Hai Yao were commissioned by Zhuhai High Speed Ferry Co, following a competitive tender process. Incat Crowther is proud of its partnership with Afai Southern Shipyard in both the successful bid and the construction process.

 

The vessels accommodate 198 passengers, all seated on the main deck in comfortable reclining seats. A large bar is situated amidships, serving beverages and snacks as well as offering a tourist information service.

 

A pair of VIP rooms is located at the aft end of the main passenger cabin, each offering 6 business class seats with a small table. A large crew accommodation space is located aft, adjacent to the passenger amenities. This area features a pantry, electrical rooms and a bunk room for 6 crew members.

 

The vessels are powered by MTU 16V2000 M70 main engines, each producing 1050kW. Hai Ju and Hai Yao have both completed sea trials. The vessels comfortably achieved their loaded service speed of 28 knots. Of over 340 vessels built worldwide to Incat Crowther designs, over 20 have been constructed in Chinese shipyards. Afai Southern recently delivered a pair of 34m Catamaran Ferries, Xun Long 5 and Xun Long 6. In addition, a pair of 36m Monohull Crewboats are under construction at Cheoy Lee’s facility in Doumen, South China.


Incat Crowther’s relationship with Chinese yards such as AFAI and Cheoy Lee opens up new opportunities for operators worldwide to source high quality Chinese built vessels, whilst giving operators in China access to Incat Crowther’s world leading product range.
