Spotless Group brand Epicure has received a new 450-passenger dinner cruise vessel, which has been developed to cater to the high-end corporate market on Sydney Harbour.

Called MV Epicure, the new 35m-long heavily glazed vessel was built by Aluminium Boats in Queensland and designed by Australia-based Incat Crowther.

With a beam of 12.5m, the USL/NSCV 1D/1E-class vessel has the capacity to carry 10,000l of fuel and 5000l of fresh water, and can accommodate a crew of 30.

The vessel features a large forward atrium, an indoor / outdoor cocktail lounge in the saloon deck. Its sky deck is designed with outdoor lounge seats and bar in addition to a small wheelhouse forward.

“MV Epicure’s main deck…is fully glass-built from floor-to-ceiling with a pillarless design to allow guests to view Sydney Harbour from inside the vessel.”

MV Epicure’s main deck dining area is fully glass-built from floor-to-ceiling with a pillarless design to allow guests to view Sydney Harbour from inside the vessel.

The vessel comprises two Scania DI13 main engines that produce a combined 588kW of power to allow the ship to cruise at a speed of 10k. Electrical power is provided by a pair of Scania DI13 357kVa generators.

The cruise ship is also equipped with a full commercial galley capable of catering to around 300 seated-guests, with provision for food preparation, cooking and storage, alongside a large cool room. The ship also offers bridal suites and green rooms.
