Australian naval architect Incat Crowther is pleased to announce construction of a 35m catamaran passenger ferry for Samso Rederi in Denmark, to be built at AFAI in China.

The Incat Crowther 35 vessel will operate between Aarhus and the island of Samso, an island of natural beauty off the Jutland Peninsula. The operation will bolster tourism and trade between the island and the mainland, bringing economic benefit.

Incat Crowther was charged with developing an economically responsible solution, so the vessel is optimised for high durability, low maintenance and efficient operation, whilst delivering a high level of passenger comfort and amenity. The vessel will accommodate 296 passengers internally over two decks.

The vessel will be powered by a pair of MAN D2862 LE463 main engines, each producing 1029kW. She will operate at 25 knots at a modest MCR to reduce load on the engines and reduce maintenance intervals. Maximum speed will be 29.5 knots. The Incat Crowther hulls have been designed specifically for high efficiency and low fuel burn.

The vessel will be built to BV rules and flagged under the Danish Maritime Authority. Incat Crowther says it is proud to be part of this project, bringing experience and expertise to a project in a way that benefits the Samso community.
