Fast ferry contract for Incat

The high-speed wave-piercing catamaran will operate in Spanish waters

The contract price is 74 million euros and construction of the vessel will commence in June 2017. The order is the second ferry in Incat’s new generation 109m long, high-speed wave-piercing catamaran range and will operate in Spanish waters when delivered in early 2019. It will have a service speed of 35 knots and accommodate 1,200 persons including 155 passengers in business class. It will have a dual vehicle deck allowing cars and freight to be transported separately. The main deck has capacity for 595 truck lane metres with a 4.6m clear height and the upper deck will accommodate 215 cars. The 109m-long catamaran offers similar passenger and vehicle capacity as the previous 112m-long design but with performance improvements, including higher speed, lower fuel consumption and better directional stability. This new vessel will be the third Incat craft to join the Naviera Armas fleet in three years. The 98m-long Volcán de Tirajana was purchased in 2015, and the Volcán de Teno, with a length of 96m, was acquired last year. Incat is also building a 110m-long fast ferry for Mediterranean company Virtu Ferries for service between Malta and Sicily.

Australian shipbuilder Incat has a contract for the design and construction of a large new vehicle-passenger ferry for Spanish shipping company Naviera Armas.
