One2three Naval Architects: Designers of Monohulls, Catamarans and Trimarans

39m Passenger Ferry

This 39m Low-Wash passenger catamaran was built for Red Funnel Group, the oldest operating ferry company in the world. This design was selected from a competitive international tender and features engines a whole size smaller than other bidders. The vessel carries 275 passengers and 29 dwt at 38 knots with two MTU 12V4000 @ 1,740kW. Using One2three's high-speed hull shape and lightweight construction techniques, contract speed was achieved at 80% MCR.
