Catamaran builder Incat Crowther has delivered the second hull in its ShadowCat range, which has been named Wayfinder.

Built at the Astilleros Armón’s Burela shipyard in Spain, the 68 metre model follows on from the first hull in the range, Hodor, which was delivered in 2019.

Wayfinder meets the IMO’s latest Tier III emission guidelines and features a 14 metre beam, draft of 2.4 metres, four decks and accommodation for 18 crew, as well as 12 extra crew and staff. The hulls are dedicated to service areas, including waste management, laundry, workshops and stores.

Elsewhere, Wayfinder features a fully certified helipad and helicopter hangar and is capable of carrying a helicopter, five large tenders and Jet Skis.

Dan Mace, technical manager of Incat Crowther, described Wayfinder as boasting “ultimate flexibility and operational efficiency.”

He added: “The high speed and low fuel consumption are impressive. The design offers a stable platform for the safe transfer of guests from a helicopter, via tenders. The hull provides a 70-per cent increase in stability for loading and off-loading its equipment and tenders.”
