Passenger Ferries

150' Trimaran Passenger Ferry 

A 150' passenger ferry trimaran built in composite materials.
This 150' passenger ferry trimaran design is designed to carry 149 passengers on relatively long trips. Its like a jetliner on the water.  The long hull length gives a superior ride in waves, compared to 149 passenger catamarans.

 The very efficient hulls take comparatively little power and generate virtually no wake.  Top speed is 48 knots.  1800 hp  gives 40 knots speed.   Construction is foam/glass.
