The eighth Incat Crowther-designed vessel for Tanzanian operator Azam Marine, passenger ferry Kilimanjaro VI, has been launched. 
 
Built by Richardson Devine Marine, the 39-meter catamaran ferry builds on the operational experience of the fleet and brings improvements to passenger accommodation and propulsion, as well as a new, sleeker appearance, the designer said.
 
Kilimanjaro VI features four ramps per side to load passengers and luggage. Two ramps per side service economy class passengers, leading them directly to the aft stairs to the upper deck and the main deck economy cabin respectively. The forward-most ramp each side feeds directly to dedicated stairs to the Royal Class upper cabin, sporting a very high level of finish. The remaining ramp each side loads directly to the luggage room, facilitating the loading of standardized luggage trolleys.
 
Jointly refined over generations of Kilimanjaro vessels, the boarding arrangement allows all classes of passenger to board independently, as well as completely separated from luggage movement. This improves both safety and efficiency, allowing the operator to turn the 566-passenger complement around quickly and continue operating profitably.
 
The main deck seats a total 255 internal seats, in addition to a kiosk and 4 toilets. The upper deck 64 inside and 104 outside. The sundeck seats 95 passengers.
 
All interior spaces are serviced by aircraft-style catering trolleys. Accommodation for four crew members is fitted to the hulls.
 
Kilimanjaro VI is powered by a pair of Cummins QSK60-M main engines, each producing 1715kW and has a top speed in excess of 32 knots.
