High speed vehicle and passenger ferries
A study commissioned by trade association Interferry reveals the far-reaching extent of the global ferry industry’s value to the world economy. Research into pre-Covid full-year figures found that, in 2019, ferries carried 4.27 billion passengers – on a par with aviation – and 373 million vehicles across a worldwide fleet of 15,400 vessels. Among other findings, the industry provided 1.1 million jobs, contributed $60 billion to the world GDP and represented approximately 20% of shipping’s economic value to the European Union.
Over many years Maatsuyker has strived to present a range of quality second hand listings on this page. Unfortunately however, in the current market, there is chronic shortage of viable HSC second hand vessels available and the options we recommend inspecting are limited to those listed below.
