Incat Crowther announced the launch of Super Dream, a 32m Catamaran Passenger Ferry for Ishigaki Dream Tours. Recently launched by Richardson Devine Marine, Super Dream is the second Incat Crowther/RDM vessel for the operator following on from Premium Dream, launched in 2008.

Incat Crowther said the Super Dream demonstrates its commitment to constant evolution by being a modern interpretation of the previous vessel. Improvements on Premium Dream include the addition of Incat Crowther’s latest hull form and a sleek, single passenger deck superstructure, resulting in a more efficient vessel.

The main passenger cabin seats 197 passengers, design to comply with Japanese “barrier-free” accessibility regulations. Features include dedicated wheelchair storage, boarding ramp and specific seats. A kiosk sits at the aft end of the main deck. Passenger comfort is enhanced by a built-in window washing system that ensures windows can be quickly and easily cleaned prior to each tour.

Super Dream has flexible boarding arrangements. In addition to the aft doors, a pair of large doors are fitted at amidships. All three locations feature large double-doors and wheelchair access. The aft deck gates are supplemented by a wheelchair ramp on the starboard side. Additionally, a gate is fitted to the upper deck starboard, allowing for docking at higher wharves.

Super Dream is be powered by a pair of Caterpillar C32 ACERT main engines. Propulsion is by 5-bladed fixed-pitch propellers. The vessel has a service speed of 30 knots, with a maximum speed of 34 knots.

As with Premium Dream, the new vessel is designed and built to JG rules, with structure designed to Class NK. Part of Incat Crowther’s expertise is working closely with government agencies and classification societies to negate any potential non-compliance issues.
