Greek ferry operator Fast Ferries has added the “Thunder”, a new high-speed passenger ship to its fleet, which now includes four vessels.

Formerly named HSC Turgut Ozal, the high-speed vessel was constructed in 1998 by Austal Ships in Australia.

“Now renamed ‘Thunder’, the ship has the Greek flag and will arrive in Greece in the coming days,” the company said in an announcement.

The 86-meter long “Thunder” can carry 1,000 passengers and 215 vehicles, and travels at a speed of up to 35 knots.

She includes luxury interior areas for the passengers with special features offering easy access, as well as a large space for vehicles.

Fast Ferries’ fleet also includes the passenger ships “Theologos”, “Fast Ferries Andros” and “Aikaterini P” which connect the port of Rafina with the Cyclades islands.
