International Catamarans (Incat)

International Catamarans (Incat) is a manufacturer of high-speed craft (HSC) catamaran ferries. The company is based in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia and was founded by Bob Clifford. The company builds vessels using lightweight aluminium construction, twin wave-piercing hulls and water-jet propulsion.

It has built smaller river and bay ferries over the years but it’s greatest success has been with large, seagoing passenger and vehicle ferries. Numerous examples of Incat built vessels have operated around the shores of the United Kingdom and Ireland since 1991 for the likes of Hoverspeed, SpeedFerries, Holyman Sally, Brittany Ferries, Condor Ferries, Isle of Man Steam Packet Company and Stena Line.
