Incat leases cat
According to Australian press reports, Incat has leased the 86 m Incat 045, the former HMAS Jervis Bay, to Italian ferry company Tris for the Genoa-to-Sardinia run for the northern hemisphere summer.

"It is another company committing to convert from slow monohulls to fast catamarans," Incat chairman Robert Clifford reportedly said, noting that Tris has expressed interest in purchasing one or a number of vessels in the future. It has eight monohulls but is looking to upgrade its fleet to fast ferries.
