Incat today launched hull number 092 a 33 metre commuter passenger vessel built for Manly Fast Ferries.
Hull 092 bearing the ‘My Fast Ferry’ livery will soon join four other Incat built vessels in the My Fast Ferry fleet in Sydney on Harbour commuter service.
The ferry has been under construction at Incat since late 2017, with a team at Incat working on day and afternoon shifts to construct and fitout the vessel.
The ferry has capacity for 400 persons, My Fast Ferries Chief Operating Officer Will Ford said “With a service speed of just under 25 knots the new craft will no doubt be as popular as those Incat vessels that have already joined the Manly fleet.”
NRMA Chief Investment Officer Rachel Wiseman officially named the vessel Ocean Adventurer with the tradition of breaking a champagne bottle across her bow.
Manly Fast Ferries was purchased early 2018 by the NRMA who now market the service with the ‘My Fast Ferry’ branding.
Incat Chairman Robert Clifford will conduct sea trials of the vessel over the next week. Robert Clifford said “It is good to see another Incat ship heading for operation in Australian waters. Our workforce is busy with the next couple of years’ production at Incat focussed on large vehicle and passenger ships for overseas clients.”
