150 Passenger Commuter Ferry

Teknicraft has developed a design of a commuter ferry to be certified for 150 passengers. The design meets all the United States guidelines for Handicap Accessibility. At 27m in length the layout provides bow loading for quick turn-around at terminals and single level access for wheelchair accessibility.  The layout provides 138 interior seats, plus 18 semi-enclosed seats, as well as 42 exterior seats and up to 4 wheelchair passengers, thereby providing excess seating with various choices for passengers. A Bar/Concession area in the after main deck area, and luggage storage near the entrance ensure comfort and easy access for passengers.

The twin waterjet propulsion powered by Caterpillar C32 engines combined with Teknicraft's low resistance catamaran hull provides a fast and economical commute.  Fully laden speed is 30 kts.
