Incat Crowther announced the launch and delivery of the 30-meter catamaran passenger ferry, Provincetown IV to Bay State Cruise Company of Boston, Massachusetts.

Gladding Hearn Shipbuilding of Massachusetts delivered the earlier vessel Provincetown III in 2004, and she has been operating for nearly a decade. When the operator planned an expansion in services, they asked that Provincetown IV bedeveloped based on the original design with an updated propulsion package for improved performance and efficiency.

The 149-passenger ferry features 108 interior seats on the main deck, along with a large bar and toilet facilities. Bicycle racks are fitted on the foredeck.

Additional boarding gates are fitted to the aft upper deck to integrate with the operator’s shore based infrastructure, and 83 exterior seats are fitted to the upper deck.

Large luggage racks are fitted on both decks. As with Provincetown III, Provincetown IV features an isolated superstructure that improves passenger comfort by reducing the transmission of noise and vibration to the passenger cabin.

Provincetown IV is powered by a pair of MTU 16V2000 M72 main engines, each producing 1122kW. On sea trials, Provincetown IV cruised comfortably at 30 knots with a full load deadweight. She has a top speed of over 32 knots. A trim tab ride control system is installed to reduce vessel motions.
