The slightly larger 77’ Swiftsure will add speed and more space to Puget Sound Express’ award-winning whale watch and eco-tourism business.

The 150-passenger, high-speed catamaran has two asymmetrical semi-planing hulls and an adjustable aluminum hydrofoil which allows the boat to achieve top speeds of 40+ knots. This design, coupled with finely-tuned, wave-piercing eco bows, enables the boat to travel through calm and rough water at full cruising speed while keeping underwater noise to a minimum.

The Swiftsure was designed from top to bottom for low fuel consumption at high speeds, a critical factor to the success of the daily whale watch tours originating out of Edmonds, WA.
