    HSC (High Speed Crafts) thread for fast vessels in passenger service.

    HSC (High Speed Crafts) thread for fast vessels in passenger service.

    This thread started back at our old board ( http://captainsvoyage.7.forumer.com/...pic.php?t=1034 ) and I have chosen to continue here in this thread.

    Here is an image of HSC Agdenes doing some service between Namsos, Rorvik and Leka while Namdalingen was at her dry dock service this December: dated December 11th 2008:

          Nice design... does this HSC carry cars as well?

          I love the fact that they still have the FFR flag painted on the side!

              Is HRG still running the HSC routes in and around Tromsø?

                    Fjordprinsessen must surely be one of the greatest looking HSC's around!
