HSC Manannan (ex Devil Cat, HSV-X1/USS Joint Venture, InCat 050)

HSC Manannan is the Isle of Man Steam Packet’s fast craft and is operating to Belfast this summer.  She is a 96m wave piercing catamaran built in 1998 by InCat at Hobart in Tasmania.

A full profile will be added shortly, but in the meantime here are some pictures.  Her specification can be downloaded from the InCat website here.
