Launched on 26th June 2015 this was the first new Australian built reef boat in Port Douglas since 2008 and the most environmentally clean power tour boat on the reef so far. She’s a product of the very latest technology and the best designers and boat builders.
Wavelength 4 carries up to a maximum of 48 passengers but is certified for 75 offshore. There is seating for 87. Comfortable air-conditioned saloon with lounge seating and added passive ventilation when moored to allow a quiet boat with no generator noise. Large shaded top deck with comfortable upholstered seating and lounge style open helm area. Sun areas on the aft top deck and bow. Large panoramic windows in the saloon for great views, including forwards to help avoid seasickness. Two toilets.
Slim hull forms have a super-fine entry, deep forefoot, round chines, and maximum waterline length for a smoother ride at high speed. High wing deck clearance avoids slamming even in rough conditions. Optimum width for the vessel’s length means good suitabilty for rough water, with less weight, drag and roll “snap” compared to a wide boat. Hydrodynamic stabiliser fins improve tracking, especially downwind in large followings seas.
A wide back deck with a lowering transom and swim platform make water access easy.
A fast boat with a top speed of 29 knots fully loaded, yet extremely fuel efficient at cruising speed which is limited to 25knots (46kph).
Incat Crowther is the leading commercial catamaran designer in the world for vessels between 18m-40m. Wavelength 4 utilises their latest generation hull design giving fuel economy and ride comfort that wasn’t available in a boat this size until recently.
