Transport efficiency

Size has a big impact on vessel efficiency.

The larger the vessel, the more efficient it is.

Transport efficiency can be defined as; (Deadweight x speed / power).

To satisfy market expectations the new generation of fast ferry must be capable of operating at economical high speeds, have fast turnaround times, be comfortable and yet operate more efficiently than conventional ferries.


Powered by conventional, affordable, medium-speed diesel engines, yet still offering among the fastest operating speeds in the world, the current generation of Incat vessels is remarkable. Incat’s next generation of vessels will utilise the latest engines available, whether medium-speed, high-power diesel engines, dual fuel engines or gas turbines. Attractive power to weight ratios offered by modern engines enable Incat to increase deadweight capacity and to increase operational speeds of

the vessels.
