Speed and comfort go hand in hand
Damen’s Fast Ferries are known for their quality, reliability and efficiency. We understand that ferries are often the only way of keeping connected, and that they function as genuine lifelines for islands and remote areas. Our designs focus on passenger comfort, high operability and predictable maintenance.
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.
Six Fast Ferries for clients in S. Korea
With 14 delivered globally, the Fast Ferry 4212 has become an icon in the market. Damen has delivered six Fast Ferries to various clients in South Korea. Building from stock to its standardised designs perfected over decades, Damen delivers comfortable, safe and efficient Fast Ferries in very short time frames.

Five fast passenger ferries for Turkey
Five Damen Fast Ferries are part of the fleet of leading ferry operator IDO in Turkey.
