Largest, Most Fuel Efficient Diesel Powered High Speed Catamaran in the World

The first of Incat’s landmark 112 metre Wave Piercing Catamarans, Natchan Rera, has been delivered to Japanese ferry giant Higashi Nihon Ferry.

Ordered in May last year, the largest vessel ever produced by Incat will operate across Japan’s Tsugaru Strait between the islands of Honshu and Hokkaido, approximately halving the time currently taken for voyages between Aomori and Hakodate by existing ships and greatly enhancing the convenience of regular passenger services. In service the Wave Piercer offers a crossing time of one hour and 45 minutes on the 61 nautical miles passage.
