Humphree Active interceptors for New Incat Crowther 24 Motor Yacht Design Project

Pitching motions are reduced by twin Humphree active interceptors


Incat Crowther, in collaboration with the client, has implemented many innovative design solutions to meet a multi-faceted project brief. Benefits of the custom design allow maximum use of spaces for the required purposes and greater efficiency at customer-specified transit speeds.

Incat Crowther supported the client through preliminary design and yard selection phases and will perform production naval architecture, exterior and interior design.

Key features of this vessel include a multifunctional lifting swimming platform that allows easy access to the water and serves as an excellent fishing platform. There is an unmatched main deck open living area and a capable upper deck with room for two sizable tenders.

The proven hull design allows Elysium to operate at an efficient cruising speed of 21 knots while assuring low fuel consumption and great comfort on board. The 2x1150hp Scania DI-16 main engines deliver a top speed of 29 knots. Designed with a practical and functional approach, the vessel offers great manoeuvrability thanks to its layout and the adoption of TwinDisc Express Positioning that administers the gearboxes and main engines with bow thrusters for station-keeping, ease of docking and slow speed manoeuvres. The aluminium hulls will be coupled with a composite superstructure.

Underway, the vessel pitching motions are reduced by twin Humphree active interceptors on the stern whilst at rest a twin anchoring system combines with the widely spaced twin hulls to provide a stable platform that does not require gyro or roll stabilizers.
