Natchan Rera


Large high speed vehicle-passenger catamaran for sale


With demand for large high quality fast ferries at a peak, Maatsuyker is pleased to present a unique opportunity to acquire an Incat 112 metre high speed ro-pax catamaran.


Built by Incat Tasmania in 2007, the acclaimed Natchan Rera is a superbly comfortable craft being built for operations in seas of up to 5 metres SWH.  The vessel is designed to operate at either high speed (i.e. approx 35-38 knots) or at medium speed (i.e. approx 22-23 knots). 


When new, the accommodation was custom designed and laid out to cater for 800 persons in unprecedented levels of style and comfort. If required, capacity could be easily increased from 800 to 1200 persons.

Passenger spaces on board Natchan Rera are located on two decks, 4 and 3. The latter is the main passenger deck, boasting three distinctive lounges, and is accessed from the vehicle decks by stairways forward and aft and also by escalators port and starboard. Additionally, an elevator is fitted ensuring passengers requiring assistance enjoy all the craft has to offer.

Aft of the Entrance Lounge are two Business Class lounges, divided by a buffet corner and toilets. Each lounge features comfortable aft-facing reclining seats, complete with foot rests. 

Immediately forward of the Entrance Lounge is a children’s play area and forward of this the Economy Lounge is divided by two amenities blocks, one containing toilets, the other a generous crew room.  In addition to two crew locker rooms there is also two emergency rooms, each fitted with three beds.

An impressive feature of the Economy Lounge is a promenade walkway, outboard of the main seating area and leading forward along the port and starboard side, wrapping around the front of the accommodation.

Above on deck 4 is the Executive Lounge, the main access to which is via the atrium and staircase in the Entrance Lounge. Passengers can relax in custom designed lover’s seats, fitted with a central rotating table complete with integrated LCD TV screen shared between each pair. There are also a number of custom designed lounge chairs and executive reclining seats, complete with calf rest, LCD TV and reading light. The lounge has a dedicated bar.

Vehicle Decks

The main vehicle deck is completely devoid of mezzanine decks. Incat’s first ‘double deck’ vehicle carrier, an internal ramp leads above to a dedicated full length car deck on Tier 2, leaving the main deck free for high sided vehicles with a load of 12 tonnes per axle.  There is space for 450 metres of freight at 3.1m wide and 4.35m clear height plus 193 cars at 4.5m length x 2.3m wide. If the vessel was to be filled entirely with cars then up to 355 vehicles may be shipped.


Natchan Rera is powered by four MAN 20V 28/33D diesel engines, each rated 9000 kW at 1000 rpm.  Specific fuel consumption is <190g/kWh which when built represented a 7% reduction per kWh over the previous generation of medium speed diesel engines. The vessel is also environmentally compliant with low NOx of <10g/kWh.

The craft is fitted with four transmissions from ZF Marine GmbH, the ZF 60000 NR2H, each with maximum rated power of 12387kW. 

Four Wärtsilä LJX waterjets are fitted and Centa carbon-fibre shafts contribute to the vessel's light weight characteristics. 

Power generation on board is supplied by four MAN D2876 LE301/HCM 534C 360kW alternators.

Speed and seakeeping 

During the course of newbuild trials, while running at 100% MCR, speeds of up to 45.4 knots were averaged with 250 tonnes deadweight on board. Loaded with 600 tonnes deadweight an average speed of 41.9 knots was achieved at 100% MCR.

In terms of seakeeping the 112 metre Natchan Rera offers significant improvements over the already excellent 98 metre class thanks to increased hull separation, increased vessel length and mass together with an increase in tunnel height and refined arch form. Enhancing the vessel’s already excellent sea keeping qualities is a Naiad/Incat Ride Control System, consisting of transom mounted trim tabs and a retractable T-foil.  

In this tight market this is excellent opportunity to acquire an outstanding Incat 112 metre high speed  catamaran. Inspection can be arranged through our office and we can guide on price for named Buyers.
