I took the photograph from her sister ship Wight Ryder II as we came into Portsmouth for the day after taking the short 22 minute sailing across the Solent from Ryde on the Isle of Wight.
She was the first of Wightlink's new purpose built high speed passenger catmarans to operate the Ryde to Portsmouth route replacing FastCat Ryde and FastCat Shanklin.
Built in the Philipines by FBMA-Babcock as Yard Number 1026 she is 41m long with a 12 m beam and 1.6m draught, equipped with twin Caterpillar ACERT C32 engines she has a top speed of 26.7 knots.
She can carry 260 passengers and has a crew of 5.
