A new 110ft composite power catamaran is sure to get pulses racing in the Seychelles.
Two Oceans Marine have confirmed a production milestone with completed hulls for its inaugural 110ft leisure charter cat.
Assembly work on the new vessel is due to start within weeks, according to company MD Mark Delany. “The hulls are out of the mould,” Delany told SABBEX. “The boat will be moved from the (Cape Town harbour facility) to our other facility (3km away) in about three weeks and we will start putting it together.”
Billed as one of the largest charter cats of its kind, the (33.5m) charter power cat designed by industry stalwart Anton du Toit. It has an upper and lower deck and a flybridge, designed specifically for day charters for large groups.
Delany said the vessel design was based on the 80-85ft Open Ocean series which had been scaled up based on the client’s specific demands. It is destined for day charter in the Seychelles. “It is set up for a variety of things, either running between the (Seychelles) mainland and inner islands, or used for day charter activities such as snorkelling, lunchtime braai etcetera,” Delany said.
In a statement released this week the company said the vessel would be the biggest composite power catamaran ever launched in South Africa. “The galley is housed in the starboard hull and can cater for 100 guests onboard. The starboard hull also has many storage lockers and a crew rest area, and bunks for the crew if needed on a delivery,” the company said. “The port hull houses the guest WC facilities – five heads for the guests and wash up basins. On her transom, she has a six meter tender on a fixed davit.”
