Catalina Express Fleet
Avalon & Super Express
The Super Express and Avalon Express are high-speed monohulls of sandwiched fiberglass with Arex core construction, two passenger decks, airline-style seating in-cabin and open-air outdoor seating, Captain’s Lounge for up to eight passengers, bar and snack station, restroom facilities.
The Super Express and the Avalon Express, launched one year apart, are sister ships built for Catalina Express by Westport Shipyard in Washington State.
Each $1.5 million, 150-passenger high speed monohull has sleek, clean lines, is powered by low emission engines, and stabilized with Maritime Dynamics computer operated ride control systems. Designed by Jack Sarin, the Westport 95’ has a beam of 22’, a fiberglass hull and Arex core construction, two low emission MTU 12v4000 engines with a combined 4500 horsepower and hydraulic bow thrusters.
These monohulls provide steady reliable service. Catalina Express updated these vessels with all new seating and interior enhancements in 2005.
These vessels have two passenger decks. The main deck is outfitted with comfortable airline-style seats constructed by Beurteaux of Australia, and offers cabin service, complete bar and snack station and restroom. The second deck offers outdoor open-air seating and the Captain’s Lounge.
The Captain’s Lounge is available for private parties and passengers can reserve this room at an additional cost to the round trip fares. The lounge is semi-private (crew members do have access) and is supplied with a bottle of champagne or sparkling cider. Catering is also available with advance notice.
