The building of the three
PacifiCat Catamaran Ferries (left) commenced in 1996 and the first one was
launched in 1998. Although it was a very good project
for us as the model builders, the program seemed to have it's problems
right from the start for the Ferry Corporation.
Philip Hercus of Australia were the hull designers, and Robert Allan Naval Architect
Vancouver was in control of the outfitting of the vessels. We were involved in building
four 1:100 scale models (below) and some
planning models at the interior design stage.
