High speed ferries taking you from city centers to the suburbs along one of the many uncontested marine highways lining the world’s coastlines.
Our Fast Ferry Fleet
While carrying passenger loads between 20 and 50 people, “swarms” of Seaphantoms can be built for less capital and operating costs than traditional and so-called fast ferries, delivering more passengers at much faster rates to far more destinations at much less annual cost.
Our Fast Ferry Innovations
Intracoastal Fast Ferry Networks (IFN)
With Seaphantom’s speed and low capital/operating expense, our operating partners can create intracoastal ferry networks that will transform the ferry industry into a low emission, fuel efficient transportation system. More analogous to a high-end, high-speed bus service, operating partners could provide low cost transport that would be a game-changer for commuters which could rival the growth rates of the commuter airlines being seen in the Asia Pacific.
The Fast Ferry Market
The worldwide ferry business annually carries more passengers today that the world’s airlines. Yet while it is a respectable $15 billion/year business, that figure remains only a fraction of the airline industry’s grosses. Perhaps the largest reason is speed. passenger planes travel between 300 and 600mph, while ferries on average travel 5.5mph, while helicopters cruise around 120mph and cost a fortune. A high-speed vessel in this market charging close to the same fare stands to be a major game-changer,
Our Fast Ferry Edge
With the Seaphantom’s speed and significantly less load-on time than either ferries or airplanes, SPI operating partners can offer solutions that not only significantly offer cleaner, more flexible solutions for the 2 billion passenger ferry market, but with substantially less cost and delays than airlines, our partners could offer an extremely competitive solution to the short haul airline business.
Our Fast Ferry Impact
High speed Intracoastal Ferry Networks could increase productivity along the world’s coastlines and inland waterways by substantially reducing the time lost in slow commutes. In addition, reduced congestion caused by large ferry terminals and the related reductions in emissions will contribute to a cleaner, more prosperous planet.
