Press Release – Incat Crowther is pleased to announce the contract for the construction of a sister vessel to Seastreak Commodore. The great success of Seastreak Commodore has opened the door to welcome a second Incat Crowther 45 to accommodate the large passenger volume along traditional routes serviced by Seastreak and brings the operator’s fleet of Incat Crowther-designed vessels to a total of nine.
At 45m x 12m with a capacity for 600 passengers, the sister vessel will join Seastreak Commodore as the highest capacity UCSG Subchapter K certified fast ferries ever built. The vessel will be built at Midship Marine in Harvey, Louisiana and will be powered by four MTU 12V4000 M64 main engines providing redundancy whilst operating efficiently at a modest rating. The vessel is propelled by Kongsberg Kamewa 63S4 waterjets. During sea trials of Seastreak Commodore, in a fully loaded condition, the vessel achieved in excess of 38 knots.
