The innovative and efficient Incat Crowther design will ensure Sentinel will be on the job for decades, said Tim Kolb, Vigor General Manager Ballard (formerly Kvichak).
In keeping all accommodation on the main deck, Sentinel features a relatively wide beam which is utilized to create an efficient layout conducive to research and water sampling activity.
Sentinels primary application is the monitoring of water quality, phytoplankton, zooplankton and benthic macro-invertebrates within the San Francisco bay area and close proximity coastline.
Incat Crowther worked with suppliers to create an efficient layout for the system that minimizes noise ingress to the cabins and has minimal effect of passenger flow and operations.
This will be the thirteenth foil assisted catamaran built by the company since 2000.
Their unique foil design enhances seakeeping at top speeds leading to reduced fuel consumption and greater efficiency.
(May 2017) Hydrus, the first in a series of 400-passenger catamaran ferries for WETA, the Water and Emergency Transportation Authority in San Francisco, is completed and has entered service.
Built by Vigor in Seattle, Wash., Hydrus is the first of this new class of vessel with additional ferries to follow.
