New Abu Dhabi Catamaran Ferries

Post by SilverDot »

Abu Dhabi Ports Group has commissioned Penguin Shipyard International to construct two Incat Crowther designed catamarans at their yard in Indonesia. Operating on the 42km route between Delma Island and Jebel Dhanna (UAE mainland), the two 56m aluminium ferries will be able to carry 194 passengers and 25 cars at a speed of 35 knots, propelled by four Kamewa 71 S-4 waterjets powered by four MTU 16V4000 M65L engines.

With two large viewing areas at the bow and stern the single air conditioned passenger deck will have two cafés, kids playroom and VIP section for 8 passengers. Above the passenger deck is the bridge deck with crew mess and facilities for the 10 crew aft of the bridge.
