400 Passenger Catamaran Ferry

Teknicraft Design has recently proposed the design for a 400-passenger aluminium catamaran commuter ferry

The 36m vessel features the Teknicraft Design signature hull shape with symmetrical bow, asymmetrical tunnel, and integrated wave piercer.  A Voith Linear Jet Propulsor has been specified to increase efficiency at the fully laden service speed of 28-30 kts.

The main deck is wheelchair-accessible and the passenger areas include designated seating space for families and those with disabilities.  58 bicycles may be stored between the foredeck and covered aft deck, and a food service kiosk is provided on the main deck for passenger convenience.  396 interior seats (half at tables) and 73 exterior seats provide comfort and seating options to commuters.
