Singapore-based operator Majestic Fast Ferry has commissioned Australia’s Incat Crowther to design 10 new 39-metre passenger ferries.   

The 312-passenger newbuilds will replace the 11 first-generation vessels Incat Crowther had previously designed for Majestic Fast Ferry, all of which have now been sold to operators in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the South Pacific. Majestic Fast Ferry launched three second-generation 42-metre Incat Crowther vessels less than 12 months ago.  

“With over 40 first- or second-generation Incat Crowther passenger ferries now either under construction or in operation around the world, this range of Incat Crowther passenger ferry has proven operational capabilities and longevity for operators,” said Brett Crowther, CEO of Incat Crowther. “The fact that Majestic could confidently sell its fleet of first-generation Incat Crowther ferries to allow it to invest in a larger replacement fleet, proves this class of ferry can be a sound, strategic investment for Incat Crowther 2 operators.”

The second-generation vessels feature a range of design improvements that build on the capabilities of the first-generation ferries. The design has been optimised to provide fuel efficiency gains for operators, while updated window aesthetics and the addition of a centre aisle and increased passenger seating spaces will “enhance the customer experience”, according to Incat Crowther. 

“Not only do these vessels form a reliable fleet, but Incat Crowther’s team of naval architects also work closely with operators to tailor each vessel to their unique customer and operational requirements,” said Crowther. “These ferries have proven to be operationally efficient, while also holding their value on the used market in the future.”
