Incat Lands 1000-Passenger Ro-Pax Ferry Design Contract

Fujian Strait Shipping Co (CSF)

Australian designer Incat Crowther has been contracted to design a 1000-passenger ro-pax ferry for operation between mainland China and Taiwan.

As informed by the Sydney-based naval architect, the ferry will be built by AFAI Southern Shipyard and operated by Fujian Strait Shipping Co (CSF) between Pingtan Island and the Taiwanese cities of Taichung, Taipei and Kaohsiung.

The ro-pax will have two vehicle decks capable of carrying 230 cars or 42 containers while the passenger cabin will have seating for 1000.

According to Incat, the Fujian Strait Shipping Co (CSF) vessel will be the largest aluminium ship built in China, and when in operation, will promote the further cross Taiwanese Strait public and economic exchange.
