March 2016 we took delivery of our new 35m, 218 passenger catamaran, the MV Harbour Master.
The new vessel, designed by Incat Crowther and constructed in Hobart by specialist aluminium shipbuilder, Richardson Devine Marine, is the culmination of many years of research and development by World Heritage Cruises operating on the Gordon River and Macquarie Harbour.
The lower reaches of the Gordon River has very strict requirements in terms of wake height and wave frequency and the MV Harbour Master has been specifically designed to meet or exceed these parameters.
The company worked closely with Richardson Devine Marine and the Australian Maritime College (AMC) to develop a design that combines excellent cruise comfort, low fuel consumption, low emissions, shallowest possible draught and minimum wake generation.
To achieve the goals we set for the new boat, extensive tank testing was carried out at the AMC during the design process which culminated in the inclusion of several advanced maritime technologies. Operating in Macquarie Harbour and the Gordon River provides a number of challenges that evolving technology has allowed us to overcome.
The vessels need to be fuel efficient to keep operating costs and emissions per passenger down, it needs to generate as little wake as possible and because of the shallow water around Sarah Island it needs to draw as little water as possible.
