Provincetown Fast Ferry - Features
The Provincetown Ferry (aka BHC's high-speed cat or Salacia), is the largest and fastest passenger catamaran of her kind in the country, traveling at speeds up to 40 knots (45mph). That’s faster than most speedboats! She’s also the largest vessel in her category, which in combination with a computerized ride stabilization system provides an incredibly smooth, comfortable journey to the Cape.
Powered by four state of the art Caterpillar marine engines producing 7,200 total horsepower, the Salacia’s horsepower is equivalent to 40 average family sedans or 15 Ferraris. These engines, coupled with Rolls Royce 550A water jets, project 120,000 gallons of water per minute at full speed -- that’s enough to fill an Olympic size swimming pool in about five minutes, or your average-sized household bathtub in the blink of an eye.
The Provincetown Ferry also transports everyone in superior comfort, with cushioned airline and booth style seating, air-conditioning, free onboard WIFI, audiovisual system with satellite TV, full cash bar and food. Plus, with all the outside deck space available, you won’t have to wait until you get to Provincetown to take in some summer sun.
