    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!

                  "Fjorddronningen II" on her way in to Troms° thursday morning. This HSC was used before on Troms° - Harstad - Troms° route,before she was replaced by the new one in 2005.She is laid up most of the time in Troms° as a reserve vessel.

                    Is HRG still running the HSC routes in and around Troms°?

                        This info is to read on HRG site.

                        Hurtigruten operates five boat lines in the county of Troms. These are managed by Torghatten North.

                          "Fjordprinsessen" on her way to Skjerv°y this afternoon.The weather changed from sun to snow at the same time.There is definetly not spring in the north yet.

                          BTW,there is some rumors that HRG is ready to sell this HSC.Some people from a Greek shipping company was onboard her before Easter to have a look.
                          We have to wait to see what's happening further.

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