    While in the south, we have a lot of new and modern ferries (not saying they are any better than older vessels), the north seems to get a higher share of older ferries.

    The ferries above, which Azimut have photographed so perfectly, are true ferries: they were built in a time when ferries were going to last a lifetime or two. These days, ferries are built as "cheap" as possible (read: according to a very tight budget), in order to fit a tender, while at the same time make some profit to ferry companies. If a ferry is built to the same high quality as 20 - 30 years ago, that will naturally be eating a big part of the companies profits.

    This is probably a trend that will continue as long as the Government doesn't set specific demands for the level of passenger comfort. Ship-owners are also experts at reading what they want to read in those tenders.

        I'm impressed how well the ferry-services between the UK and Europe is executed at.

        As mentioned in another thread, Trondheim has been trying to start a ferry route to Scotland for at least 10 years. A seasonal route for cars/trucks and passengers - a Trondheim - UK version of the Danskebåten.

            I like the grey color of ferries of "Bjørkelids Rederi" - suits actually quite well together with the blue stripe.

            Also, not often we see company logo's in a flag anymore.
