73 DERECKTOR 73m High Speed Ferry Vehicle and Passenger Ferry for the Alaska Marine Highway This catamaran ferry was designed by Nigel Gee Associates for Derecktor’s bid on the Alaska Marine Highway System Project. It is designed to be a safe, high-speed RO/RO passenger ferry that minimizes costs and can interface with existing AMHS docks and pier side facilities. It can carry 250 passengers on the main deck and 30 large vehicles, of the type mostly used in Alaska, on the cargo deck at a continuous-rating service speed of 35 knots and with great comfort up to sea state 6. Powered by four diesel engines and four water jets, this 73m catamaran uses a geosym of the Nigel Gee hull form employed in the 41m M/V Flying Cloud, which has been shown to provide the highest transport efficiency of any high-speed ferry of this size. A complete set of tank tests has been carried out, showing very low wake wash characteristics. The main deck has interior seating for 150 passengers in the observation lounge fwd and 104 in the snack bar area midship with a mixture of airline type reclining seats and table arrangements. Further seating is provided in the exterior solarium located aft. Full ADA compliance is guaranteed throughout the vessel. Dedicated areas for video games and work/study and a full service snack bar complete the onboard accommodations. Noise levels are below 75 dBA throughout the vessel interior. A helicopter pick-up area is located on the top deck. Classed with DNV Maltese Cross 1A1 HSLC, R3 and with full USCG compliance to SOLAS/HSC Code Cat. B, this aluminum vessel is the first vehicle and passenger high-speed ferry ever built in the US and it takes advantage of Derecktor’s experience and high level of craftsmanship in the field of highly-stressed aluminum structure construction.
