First launched in November 2006, this Australian-built 35-metre high-speed catamaran, designed by Incat Crowther and surveyed to international standards, was the fastest and most technologically advanced vessel in Seychelles until the introduction of the Isle of Mahe in August 2013. Fitted with an MDI Interceptor-based Ride Control system, it provides an efficient propeller-driven solution for a high-speed passenger craft application. This twin-hulled craft is made from marine-grade aluminium and is powered by two MTU 12V4000 M70 main engines, driving propellers through a ZF7500 reduction gearbox. The main internal deck can carry up to 208 passengers, while the upper external deck can comfortably carry 142 passengers. The Isle of Praslin is fully equipped with the latest safety equipment, including life jackets, life rafts, fire extinguishers and life rings, as well as GPS navigation and VHF Ship-to-Shore radio.
