Welcome back to the our channel for a discussion about how catamaran hull designs are changing the game for civilian, military, and construction vessels. I remember the first time I saw a hydrafoil it was 1988 and I was stationed at Lymun Barracks Hong Kong I used to watch the hydrafoil ferries go between Hong Kong & Macou, I was absolutely fascinated having never seen anything like them before. Incat 45 was commissioned into the Royal Australian Navy as HMAS Jervis Bay between 1999 and 2000. Over this time, she made 107 trips between Darwin and Timor Leste (then known as East Timor), shipping 20,000 passengers, 430 vehicles and 5,600 tonnes of freight, becoming known as the "Dili Express.” Running the Jervis Bay proved more efficient than using air transport to move materiel to and from Timor Leste with the higher sailing speed averaging 45 kt, meaning she could turn around a payload faster than multiple C-130 Hercules flights for an equivalent load. Incat 45 is now based in Greece and is used as a high-speed ferry by Seajets.
