The new catamaran is the eighth to be designed by Incat Crowther for World Heritage Cruises
Construction is underway at Richardson Devine Marine on a new catamaran for Tasmanian operator World Heritage Cruises, with delivery scheduled before the end of 2020.
The vessel is the eighth to be designed for the operator by Incat Crowther and is intended to improve upon its previous vessel Harbour Master. The vessel is one metre wider to provide more space for passengers and more aisles of seating. A bar has been added to the mid-deck, linked to the main deck food preparation space by a dumb waiter. The main deck service spaces have also been expanded, with the bar and food preparation now separated and a larger island installation. The main stair tower has been moved to the rear of the vessel to allow more light into the cabins, and new amenities such as wi-fi and multiple device charging points have been added.
The new vessel will be powered by quad Scania DI16 076M main engines, which will drive a quartet of Doen DJ200 water jets. This will give the catamaran an operating speed of 25 knots. Once delivered, she will sail cruises along the Gordon River in Tasmania, Australia.
Harbour Master will be transferred to new owners and operate a service to Rottnest Island, Australia. The ferry will be optimised by Incat Crowther for its new service.
