One2three Naval Architects: Designers of Monohulls, Catamarans and Trimarans

24m Commuter Ferry

This 24m Eco-Jet catamaran is purpose built for commuters travelling between islands and the mainland. Also suitable for a ferry river service, the interior layout has been configured for maximum passenger numbers and easy disembarkation. The low-wash hull form is very slippery through the water meaning quick transit times and low impact on the nearby river banks. Three vessels of this design are now in service, with a fourth currently under construction.
