Korea Express Ferry

Designed by Incat Crowther and designed by Kangnam in Busan, the Korea Express Ferry is built to meet security, satisfaction, and ideal performance standards. 

Also called Korea’s Pride, it is claimed to be the first-of-its-kind ship to be constructed locally in South Korea. 

The single deck of the ferry can hold 556 passengers. Its elegant composition will encourage it to handle distinct conditions, including large swells and wind chops. 

There are six boarding gates or doors to strengthen safety and efficiency. There are economy, business, and first-class cabins, as well as a central amenities block with a large and well-equipped kiosk. 

The ferry has a neat engine room layout, exposed engine hatches, and quad MTU 16V4000 main engines and has an operating speed of 36.5 knots. 

It had taken delivery of a 72m passenger ferry which will run from Incheon on South Korea’s west coast. 


Incat Crowther technical manager Dan Mace said: “Safety and open sea capability drove our design and build. The 72m platform is longer than usual for a single-deck ship. This delivers greater speed without sacrificing fuel efficiency.”

Korea Express Ferry CEO Sung Man Hwang said: “We are very pleased with the outcome. We received a high-quality ship that reached an impressive 41 knots on sea trials. It is a very happy day for us to take delivery of such an extraordinary ship. It will serve our passengers very well.”
