One2three Naval Architects: Designers of Monohulls, Catamarans and Trimarans

55m Passenger Ferry

The world's first trimaran passenger ferry! This high-tech vessel features foil assistance for the ultimate in speed and smooth ride. The vessel carries 450 pax and 50 dwt at 40 knots using just three MTU 16V4000 @ 2,320kW each. The equivalent catamaran or monohull would require 4 engines to achieve the same results. The cabins are laid out for high passenger numbers and exterior boarding ramps are utilised to aid passenger embarkation.
