Passenger Ferries

61' Catamaran Ferry

This 61' passenger ferry is based on HOLOHOLO,  Kai Oli Oli, and several in Brazil.  
These 61' passenger cats can be great ferries, especially for longer offshore runs.  They have great economy and superior ride.  This composite catamaran design is built in composite and USCG certified for 65 passengers.

A pair of 450 hp engines give 29 knots speed with 80% load.
