The Brilliance of Majestic, the first of three new vessels being built for Majestic Fast Ferry, has been launched, according to Australian ship designer Incat Crowther.
The Incat Crowther 42 unit, that features a high service speed at a low installed engine power, was delivered to its owner from the Indonesian PT Cahaya Samudra Shipyard.
The previous vessels housed their passengers in a single deck configuration that reduced weight and construction complexity. The Brilliance class was driven by the requirement to carry more passengers at greater speed, whilst giving business class passengers an exclusive experience, Incat Crowther explained.
Brilliance of Majestic’s main deck cabin seats 261 economy passengers, while the ships’s upper deck business class cabin can accommodate 43 passengers.
The vessel is powered by quad MTU 12V2000 M72 main engines, each developing 1080kW. Propelled by quad Rolls Royce 56A3 jets, the unit has a fully-laden speed of 38 knots.
