Sea Cat 29 GA Plan

GA Plan for Seacat 29

29M Alum Catamaran Design "Sea Express II"

We are proud to announce the completion of our new 29-metre high-speed ferry design. This sleek new aluminum catamaran is one of our best designs yet and goes as well as she looks, achieving over 30 knots during sea trials.

This new ferry design is built in accordance with Lloyds Register SSC Code for hull and also US Coast Guard, Sub Chapter K requirements and she is suitable for 149 passengers internationally and up to 300 passengers for domestic coastal services. To achieve speeds of over 30 knots, she is powered by twin Baudouin V12 engines (1650H.P).

This design can truly be described as environmentally friendly, with engine and exhaust systems up to IMO Tier 3 standard and United States EPA 4 compliant. The exhaust is fitted with an SCR system to ensure exhaust emissions are as minimal as possible. This is the first vessel fitted with this system for these particular engines. The vessel also has zero discharge to keep her eco-friendly.  Click here to see Video

 Propulsion is through conventional prop/shaft, fixed propellers and mini keels which protect the prop’s and gives the vessel great tracking and sea keeping. This matched with our new deep-vee Seacat hull (which has been developed based on our pre-existing proven hulls) will ensure customers a comfortable ride.

The lower deck has 195 aircraft, economy style seats plus sunken lounge seating in the fore-deck area.

The flooring is a mixture of teak style walkways with lush carpet under the seats. The walls and ceilings are constructed from honey comb panels, with a painted surface for a nice clean look, easy maintenance and extended longevity. The cabins are fully air-conditioned with built in redundancy, to ensure operation even if (on the off chance) there is unit failure. She has a total of four toilets, three of which are on the lower deck (one larger, wheel chair accessible toilet) and one located on the upper deck.
