Abstract

High-speed ferries have established themselves in many commuter and short-sea routes all over the world. While in the case of commuter services fast ferries commonly compete with alternative land transport modes, in the case of short-sea routes competition is usually limited to conventional ferries and, in some cases, aeroplanes. This allows a more direct comparison and investigation into the prospects of introducing high-speed services in new routes. The paper discusses the implications of establishing a new service in this context and the factors that influence the design of vessels suitable for this role. A case study is presented which concerns the design of a high-speed SWATH car/passenger ferry for a route between Greece and Italy. Finally, the example of a high-speed catamaran car/passenger ferry which was recently introduced into the Greek inter-island network is used for comparison and for a validation of the points made in the paper.
