Singapore’s Majestic Fast Ferry Pte Ltd has commissioned leading digital shipbuilder Incat Crowther to design a new second generation 39-metre passenger ferry as the basis of its future fleet.

Incat Crowther’s range with PT Cahaya Samudra covers four vessels lengths; 29-metres, 32-metres, 39-metres and 42-metres. All four designs are now already in their second generation, having proven themselves in service worldwide.

Eleven of Majestic’s first-generation Incat Crowther / PT Cahaya Samudra vessels have been sold to operators in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the South Pacific and have been replaced in service by second generation vessels.

The order brings the number of second generation Incat Crowther designed and PT Cahaya Samudra built 39-metre vessels to 13, and comes in addition to three second generation 42-metre vessels launched less than 12 months ago.

Once the new fleet of second generation 39-metre passenger ferries is finalised, there will be over forty vessels designed and delivered by Incat Crowther and PT Cahaya Samudra in service worldwide.

The second generation 39-metre vessels can transport up to 312 passengers at a speed of 32 knots and feature a range of design improvements that build on the proven capabilities of the first-generation ferries. The design of the vessel has been optimised to provide fuel efficiency gains for operators, while the customer experience has been enhanced via a sleek design, featuring updated window aesthetics, the addition of a centre aisle and increased passenger seating spaces.

Commenting on the commissioning of the new fleet, Incat Crowther CEO Brett Crowther said it reaffirmed confidence in the second generation Incat Crowther ferries, while the demand for the first generation vessels on the used market proves the vessels are a smart investment for operators around the world.

“With over forty first or second generation Incat Crowther passenger ferries now either under construction or in operation around the world, this range of Incat Crowther passenger ferry has proven operational capabilities and longevity for operators,” said Mr Crowther.

“The fact that Majestic could confidently sell its fleet of first generation Incat Crowther ferries to allow it to invest in a larger replacement fleet, proves this class of ferry can be a sound, strategic investment for operators. Not only do these vessels form a reliable fleet, but Incat Crowther’s team of naval architects also work closely with operators to tailor each vessel to their unique customer and operational requirements.”

“These ferries have proven to be operationally efficient, while also holding their value on the used market in the future,” said Mr Crowther.
