Incat Crowther said it received a contract to design a 20m catamaran passenger ferry, taking tourists in search of monster Nessie in the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland.

The vessel, being built by Cruise Loch Ness, will be powered by a pair of Volvo D9 MH main engines, producing 313 kilowatt (kW) per side. These engines are capable of propelling the vessel to speeds over 20 knots.

Incat Crowther’s Europe office is working on the preliminary design phase, including an analysis of the vessel’s platform and a narrow-beam catamaran.

The main deck is spacious with large windows for monster-spotting opportunities. Toilets and a bar are located aft. The upper deck is effectively an interior space, being open at the side whilst being covered above. This will allow the cruise to operate in various weather conditions, without forcing passengers inside, according to Incat Crowther.

The vessel’s design features an asymmetric wheelhouse, incorporating an enclosed wing control station on the port side, and an open access passage to starboard. The open starboard side passage allows direct access for crew between the wheelhouse and foredeck, whilst also giving the flexibility of passenger flow between foredeck and upper deck.

Construction of the vessel is underway at Exeter Fabrication Ltd in England.
