Trasmapi purchases third fast ferry for Balearic Islands


The new high-speed ferry will serve routes in the Balearic Islands

Spanish ferry company Trasmapi has purchased a third fast ferry, which will transport up to 900 passengers and 200 cars between the Balearic Islands in Spain.

Built by Incat Tasmania in Hobart, Australia, the 86-metre-long, wave-piercing catamaran has two passenger decks and four Ruston RK270 engines, allowing her to operate at a top speed of more than 40 knots. The vessel was purchased from UK-based operator Condor Ferries, where she had sailed as Condor Rapide and provided high-speed services between the Channel Islands, France and the UK for more than a decade.

Trasmapi will also take delivery of two other fast ferries – HSC Fairweather and HSC Chenega – both of which are currently being transported from Ketchikan, Alaska to Ibiza, Spain onboard a heavy lift ship named Red Zed 1.

“There is nothing better than facing new times developing our business plan while we await the progressive recovery of the sector, with new business opportunities,” said Rafael Cardona, general manager of Trasmapi. “That is why we strive to continuously improve services to our customers, with new additions to our fleet.”
