High-speed ferries

  • Express 2

    Express 2 has set new standards for high-speed ferries in terms of space and comfort. It is easy to drive on and off the large car deck, which is as big as half a football pitch.

    When on board, you can enjoy your break in the business lounge, choose from a broad selection of dishes in the restaurant and bistro, or enjoy an exceedingly good cup of coffee in the Espresso House coffee bar.

    The Express 2 was built at the Incat shipyard in Tasmania, south of Australia, and only made two stops on the 25,000-kilometre-long journey home to Denmark.

  • Express 3

    The Express 3 is not only one of the world’s largest high-speed ferries, it is also one of the newest. And it is an evolution of the Express 2 superferry.

    The ship’s design, engines and interior incorporate the latest technology, and it continues the Express ferries’ tradition of raising the standard of modern shipping.

    As in the Express 2, there is a high level of comfort and plenty of space – both in the passenger areas and on the superferry’s expansive car deck where there is room for up to 415 passenger cars.

    Kombardo!
