Incat Designs - Sydney is pleased to announce the delivery of Provincetown III. The 30m 149 passenger catamaran was launched at Gladding Hearn Shipbuilders' Shipyard in time to enter service for the July 4 long weekend.
The vessel is being operated by Bay State Cruise Company
(BSC) of Boston MA on the 55 nautical mile run between Boston and Provincetown, replacing Friendship IV. The new vessel has a service speed of 30 knots while carrying 149 passengers. The vessel is powered by 2 x Cummins (CMI)
KTA 38-M2 diesel engines providing 1350HP @ 1950rpm. These drive two 5 bladed fixed pitch propellers through ZF reduction gearboxes.
Provincetown III also sports two of Incat Designs' cornerstone design features; an isolated superstructure and S-Bow hull configuration. The isolated superstructure reduces the transfer of noise and vibration to the passenger areas. The S-Bow is a further development of the company's hullform. These two features combine to create a comfortable journey for BSC's customers.
