Incat Crowther is pleased to announce the launch of Majestic 7, the first of four HSC catamaran passenger ferries to be delivered to Majestic Ferries in Singapore.
Built at PT Cahaya Samudra Shipyard in Indonesia, the 200-passenger 33-meter vessel will operate between Singapore and Batam. The vessel gives the operator increased capacity and speed at a fraction of the fuel consumption of the current competitors.
All of Majestic 7’s 200 passengers enter through midship boarding doors and sit in forward-facing seats. In addition, there are four seats for crew members. At the aft end of the cabin are a 6-person crew room and kiosk, as well as three heads. The upper deck, free of passengers, features just the wheelhouse with excellent all-round visibility. The vessel is built to the HSC 2000 code under Bureau Veritas survey.
Powered by a pair of MAN D2862 LE463 main engines, rated at 1029kW, driving fixed pitch propellers, Majestic 7 performed well in sea trials, reaching a loaded speed in excess of 30 knots. The vessel will be operated at a service speed of 28knots at a reduced MCR.
Majestic 7 is part of a multiple-vessel order which has been further expanded to include a pair of larger capacity vessels due to be launched in late 2016.
