The RAN catamaran HMAS Jervis Bay in 2000.
The HMAS Jervis Bay (AKR-45) is a wave piercing catamaran operated by the Royal Australian Navy from 1999 onwards.

Built by Incat in Tasmania and launched in 1997 as Incat 045, the ship was chartered to TT-Line as Tascat to supplement cross-Bass Strait services until the company acquired new ships. The catamaran remained laid up until 1999, when she was commissioned into the Royal Australian Navy as a troop and equipment transport, becoming the first large catamaran to enter naval service.
