Fast Ferries

Damen’s Fast Ferries are known for their reliability and affordability. We understand that ferries are often the only way of keeping connected, and that they function as genuine lifelines for islands and remote areas. Whether it is a visit to the doctor, to attend a family gathering, invite guests or to import fresh food and fuel: the ferry makes it all possible. Our designs focus on passenger comfort, high operability and predictable maintenance.

Low fuel and maintenance costs

High-speed, comfortable catamarans

Our Fast Ferries are a series of high-speed, aluminium catamarans for passenger transport. They are designed for coastal operations and have high levels of passenger comfort, as well as low fuel consumption and maintenance costs. Standard designs are available from 100 to 450 passengers, but these can be adapted to requirements. Various seating arrangements are possible, from basic commuter to first class seats. Amenities such as kiosks and entertainment are tailored to the specific use of the ferry.


Four Fast Ferries for clients in S. Korea

Damen has sold four Fast Ferries 4212 to different companies operating on the east coast of the Korean Peninsula. Building from stock, Damen delivers comfortable, safe and efficient Fast Ferries within very short time frames.

Different propulsion arrangements

Damen delivered two of these Fast Passenger Ferries, executed with different propulsion types for clients in South Korea.

Damen could provide us with a ferry which cuts fuel consumption in half and enables us to double our passenger capacity.
