A fast ferry for 60 passenders was designed in collaboration with Alwoplast shipyard in Valdivia, Chile as a hydrofoil assisted catamaran with a tandem foil system in which the rearfoil attack angle can be adjusted by the helsman via an oil-hydraulic system.

FASTcc developed the hull on the basis of the Hysucat with fully asymmetrical demi-hulls, bow inserts, wentilated wave-spoiler and deep-V-planing demi-hulls for rough water operation.

The lines plan and hydrostatics were produced by FASTcc and the detail design and the construction were conducted by Alwoplast.
FASTcc who conducted the hydrodynamic calculations for the hybrid, catamaran and foils, with the Mathematical Model of the Hysucat and predicted propulsion power requirements. The foil system was developed and designed for a topspeed of 37 knots at 22.5t and twin Cummins QSM11 Diesel engines with 432kW each turning out a bit heavier with some speed loss and it is operated between 30 and 35 knots on the Lago Grey in Chile. More details can be found on the website of Alwoplast under the press release.
