14.5 m [47.6′] passenger ferry cat
The Matauri is similar in conception to the Hong Kong ferries but has extra passenger space on the upper deck which allows it to carry more passengers and still have a bar and galley. The helm is on the starboard side adjacent to a sliding window which allows the skipper to temporarily secure the boat without leaving his station. The boat also features a side opening loading door. This particular design has been built in both timber and foam and glass construction. We are currently developing a 16.5m version of this vessel with improved load carrying and seakeeping.
