Crystal Spirit

Our second 24 metre Aluminium Passenger Catamaran launched in April 2003.  This high speed low wash ferry carries 220 passengers in comfort.  Peter Verell of Palm Beach Ferries, the owner of Aqua Spirit (launched October 2002) was so impressed with the vessel he has bought another - "Crystal Spirit."  

Excellence in finish and economy are just a couple of reasons that these boats stand out.   The design of the hulls and motor configuration means the boat does not slam in a head sea and provides a smooth vibration free ride and the passenger layout is excellent.
