Passenger Express 30

In June 2016, Austal was awarded a contract from Supercat Fast Ferry Corporation (SFFC) of the Philippines, for two 30 metre passenger catamaran ferries. A subsidiary of leading Philippines transportation and logistics company 2Go Group Inc (PSE:2GO), SFFC has awarded Austal a AU$13million contract which includes the provision of spares.

Transporting up to 300 passengers each at up to 25 knots, the two catamarans will join SFFC’s popular ‘Supercat’ fast ferry fleet operating between 10 ports throughout the Philippines Archipelago.

Construction of the Incat-Crowther designed vessels will take place at Austal Philippines and delivery is scheduled for June 2017.
