Incat Crowther Delivers Passenger Ferry to Honduras

Incat Crowther has announced the delivery of Utila Dream, a 244-passenger 30m Catamaran Passenger Ferry, built by Midship Marine in Louisiana. Utila Dream was recently delivered on its own bottom to Honduras where she has commenced operation between the island of Utila and the mainland city of La Ceiba, a journey of approximately 21 miles.   Designed specifically for rough water operation, Utila Dream heralds a new era of ferry service for the island, being larger, faster and far more capable than previous operations.   Providing a lifeline to the mainland, reliability is addressed with Incat Crowther’s robust engineering, the selection of a main engine delivering the service speed at low MCR and a simple machinery and drive train package.   Utila Dream is fitted with wet and dry cargo rooms aft loaded via 3 lifting ramps on each side of the vessel. The aft ramps serve the cargo rooms, whilst the remaining ramps serve passenger spaces with all passenger movement being segregated from freight movement. The main deck cabin features seats for 112 passengers. A pair of forward doors leads past the forward boarding ramps to the foredeck, where an additional 32 outdoor seats are located.   The upper deck is served by stairs ports and starboard, adjacent to the aft passenger ramps. A total of 82 exterior passengers are seated on this deck, with a bar located forward. Forward of this is a VIP cabin with 18 large executive-style seats
