Designers of ‘Ika Rere’ – the southern hemisphere’s first 100% battery powered, all-carbon, high speed, 135 paX ferry for Wellington, NZ


SSC Marine develops energy efficient vessel designs from 15m to 25m for commercial applications, offering fleet operators:

  • Reduced operational costs – up to 80% increase in passenger miles per kilowatt*
  • Total cost of ownership reduced by up to 35%**
  • Previously unobtainable energy efficiencies
  • Outstanding on-water performance in terms of kW/tonne of displacement

Not a fleet operator, but still interested in what we can offer in terms of efficiency? We’re specialists, but versatile within our areas expertise, with plenty of boats under our belts, so we’d be happy to start a discussion.

Knowledge is power, and good design decisions are based on good information. We calculate, we analyse, we predict and then we validate in the real world so we have confidence in our prediction tools. This data feedback loop between designers, builders and operators is a vital part of our success. #navalarchitecture #zeroemissions #electricferry See MoreSee Less

A well deserved result for a great team that put together this most incredible vessel – Ika Rere, the Southern Hemisphere’s first 100% electric fast ferry – 100pax at 20kn in near complete silence, just the wind and waves, zero emissions and a fraction of the energy cost. #navalarchitecture #electricferry #zeroemissions See MoreSee Less
