It was 'Australian Trader' similar hull to Empress of Australia but with reduced superstructure and no sheer. Commissioned RAN in 1987. Reference - Peter Plowman 'Passenger Ships of Australia & New Zealand, Vol 2 (Doubleday Aust P/L 1981) Definitely not the Incat ferry, although I believe one such did become HMAS>

HMAS Jervis Bay (2) was never a "SEACAT" this is a generic Hoverspeed term for early 74m craft and possibly a couple of 81m craft (038 & 041) and not correct for any other craft of the Incat stable. Jervis Bay (2) - Incat 045, last 86 m high speed catamaran built before embarking on the next generation of 91m craft. Currently in operation on the Dover to Boulogne route with Speedferries and named Speedone.
