Norwegian Cruise Lines is operating three new 25-metre cruise tenders designed by Incat Crowther in the Caribbean. Built by Singapore’s Penguin Shipyard International, the tenders are based at NCL’s base in The Bahamas and are designed to ferry 354 passengers from the company’s ships to a private island resort. They feature a wheelchair lift allowing access to the upper deck, two main deck wheelchair accessible rooms and three toilets, one of which is wheelchair accessible. The upper deck of each tender can accommodate up to 188 passengers and offers covered seating.
The tenders have been specifically designed for the existing infrastructure at Great Stirrup Cay Resort in the Bahamas. Their design has streamlined embarkation and disembarkation via bespoke main deck bow ramps and two entrances on the upper deck. The project is part of a series of bespoke designs from Incat Crowther for clients around the world, featuring deep hulls for maximum comfort and operational efficiency.
Ed Dudson, managing director for Europe at Incat Crowther, said the project proved that world-leading catamaran hull designs could work across various sectors and environments, including the tourist transport sector. The project demonstrated that Incat Crowther’s digital shipbuilding process ensured operational efficiency and provided luxury to the guests travelling with NCL.
