The catamaran has captured the fast ferry market in a way that the hydrofoil and the hovercraft both failed to do. Its successful combination of speed, comfort and capacity has helped keep ferry travel modern and practical in a time when the industry is faced with fierce competition from cheap airlines and the Channel Tunnel.
Until the next fast ferry innovation arrives, the catamaran ferry has firmly established itself as the standard for speedy sea crossings around the British Isles. It dominance was firmly established when Hoverspeed’s Seacat model was chosen to replace its one-time rival - the faster and in many ways more innovative hovercraft - on its Dover - Calais route in October 2000.
