Incat Crowther Delivers New Fuel Efficient Passenger Vessel

Incat Crowther is pleased to announce that Majestic Ferries’ Incat Crowther-designed fleet continues to grow with the delivery of Majestic Dream,the first of a new class of fuel-efficient 39m HSC compliant passenger vessels.

Majestic Ferries operates vessels between Singapore and Batam in a competitive marketplace. The operator worked with Incat Crowther to develop a cost-effective vessel that offers comfort, performance and fuel consumption superior to that of the competition. This process saw the construction of a trio of 33m vessels; Majestic 7, Majestic 8 and Majestic 9.

Since introducing the catamaran service, Majestic Ferries has grown its market share, validating the development effort, and triggering the commissioning of additional vessels to a larger design.

Majestic Dream is the first of these higher capacity vessels. With an extra 1.5m beam and 6m more length, Majestic Dream increases passenger capacity to 317. In a similar configuration to the 33m vessels, Majestic Dream features toilets aft and midship boarding doors and adjacent luggage storage, with all passengers on a single deck. Majestic Dream also adds a pair of VIP rooms featuring private accommodation in larger seats.

Fitted with larger MTU 16V2000 M72 main engines, Majestic Dream achieved a loaded speed 32 knots on trials and cruises at speed of 28 knots at less than 85% MCR. The vessel is fully compliant with the HCS Code.

Majestic Dream will be joined by a sister ship later in 2017, with further vessels under construction.
