The simple way to move people

Demanding conditions on the seas between Indonesia and Malaysia are no match for the 255-seat passenger ferry ‘Indomal Empire’ which has made a successful entry into operating services in the Malacca Strait.

The Incat Crowther 30, built by PT Cahaya Samudra Shipyard in Batam, Indonesia, is operated by Indomal Express. Requiring compliance with local rather than international regulation, Indomal Empire was specifically developed to cater to a segment of the market demanding lower ticket prices and consequently less complex, yet still very capable, vessels.

Indomal Empire has a functional layout of forward-facing seats over two decks and is fitted out to a high standard. Midship entry doors on the main deck provide a central boarding position in direct proximity to stairs to the upper deck. Luggage racks are fitted here and at the forward end of the cabin. The main deck seats 207 and has three bathrooms aft.

The upper deck accommodates 48 passengers, is full width and affords a good outlook around the wheelhouse and to the sides. Exterior seats with tables are also available.
Large deck hatches at the midship boarding doors provide access to hull compartments dedicated to luggage storage.

Indomal Empire is powered by twin 2 x MAN D2862 LE483 main engines, easily propelling the vessel to a top speed of 30 knots. Propulsion is via a pair of ZF 3050 gearboxes to fixed-pitch propellers.

Indomal Empire’s success has resulted in orders for three additional vessels, with further vessels scheduled for construction as ‘stock’ vessels for general sale.
