Australian ship designer Incat Crowther has secured a contract to design a catamaran passenger ferry for operation in Korea.

The Incat Crowther 65 will be built by shipbuilder Khan, based in Geoje-si, Korea, and operated by Dolphin Shipping.

With a length of 64.5 meters and a width of 14 meters, the ship will fly the flag of the Republic of Korea.

As informed, the newbuild will provide a vital link between Pohang, on mainland Korea and the island of Ulleung-do, where it will be the second largest vessel on the route.

In addition, it will be the first locally-built high-speed ferry on the route.

Incat Crowther will work with Khan to develop the construction capability for aluminium high-speed light vessels, in compliance with IMO HSC Code and local Korean Register of Shipping (KRS) regulations.

Tentatively named Dolphin 3, the vessel will carry 710 passengers over two decks, with the wheelhouse located on a third deck with all-round visibility. Oversize boarding points are located aft and at amidships to facilitate smooth boarding of the large passenger complement.

The Incat Crowther 65 will be more capable in rougher seas than existing boats on the run, improving on the number of days the service is run, according to Incat.

With a service speed of 39.5 knots and a maximum speed of 47 knots , the vessel will take an hour off the Dolphin Shipping’s current vessel’s journey.

Dolphin 3 will be powered by quad 3700kW main engines driving Rolls Royce Kamewa S80-4 waterjets.
