New Ferry from WaveMaster


WaveMaster International delivered the 37.4 metre, 272 passenger ferry "Draž ocht Na Farraige".

WaveMaster International and owners Island Ferries Teo of Ireland were determined to put an economical aluminium ferry on the Galway-Aran Island run, yet had to contend with local regulations which limited overall length and called for structural materials with equivalent properties to steel. The Irish Department of Marine in line with European Community regulations require a steel deck.

Protracted negotiations resulted in the increasing of the permitted length to an economic size, and the inclusion of steel 3mm plating in the deck above the engine room. "Draž ocht Na Farraige" (the English translation is "Magic of the Sea") joins a fleet of four smaller conventional ferries serving the ten mile commuter and tourist route. Exposed to the full fetch of the North Atlantic, sea and swell conditions can be extreme, and WaveMaster tailored form and scantlings of the monohull to suit. Bottom plate thickness around the substantial keel is 8mm; the lines forward are fine, the deadrise steep. Incorporation of a second chine allows a narrower waterline beam which rapidly picks up buoyancy and stability with immersion. More information: WaveMaster, Devina Bartlett
