Metal Shark has delivered an 88-foot, 150-passenger high speed aluminum catamaran for NYC Ferry operated by Hornblower.

The Incat Crowther-designed HB122 is the 22nd vessel Metal Shark has built for NYC Ferry, and the 35th passenger vessel delivered from its Franklin, La. shipyard since April 2017.

Metal Shark and Horizon Shipbuilding (which has since been taken over by Metal Shark) were selected to built the new fleet of NYC Ferry vessels in 2016.

Halimar Shipyard, Breaux Brothers Enterprises and St John’s Shipbuilding are also building new ferries for the New York operator.
