High Speed Monohull Ferries

WaveMaster International has announced award of an order for ten 36-metre high-speed aluminium monohull ferries for delivery to Singapore. Firm contracts for the initial six-vessel order were placed, and the shipyard and purchaser signed options for the remaining four vessels. All ferries will be designed and constructed in Western Australia at WaveMaster’s Henderson facilities.

Design of the new monohull has been developed in compliance with the stringent safety requirements of the High Speed Craft Code, as laid down by the International Maritime Organization, and the Singapore Marine Authorities.

Even with WaveMaster’s history of innovation and industry benchmark setting, this is a considerable achievement in this size of vessel and reflects the Company’s experience with this particular hull form. The combination of low capital cost, simple maintenance, and safe, passenger-pleasing accommodation, also draws from experience gained from the numerous earlier WaveMaster monohulls, all of which continue to operate profitably on some of the world’s most competitive routes. Design and build time will be an express nine months for the initial six-vessel order. Hulls and superstructures will be built in separate halls to accelerate construction, although the real key to speed of production is WaveMaster’s three-dimensional UNIGRAPHICS design solution.
