By investing in new tonnage, Fjord Line would double the capacity on the route Kristiansand (Norway) – Hirtshals (Denmark).
The catamaran is going be built by Austal, says the Fjord Line press release. However, Austal said that it is still in discussions with Fjord Line.
The catamaran should be delivered in 2020. Travel time will be 2 hours and 15 minutes, with a top speed of 40 knots.
Capacity will be double, compared to the actual HSC FJORD CAT: 1,200 passengers, 410 cars.
