The 400 PAX, carbon fibre catamaran shares the design of sister ships Vision of The Fjords and Future of The Fjords, but marks a bold move by the owners into an entirely new operating area – the Norwegian capital, Oslo.
The Fjords operates 11 vessels serving Western Norway’s spectacular fjords area.
Vision and Future are the current flagships, sailing daily between Flåm and Gudvangen and exposing visitors from around the world to the sights, sensations and seasonal variations of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Nærøyfjord. It is the company’s stated mission to provide an optimal passenger experience while safeguarding the unique environments the ships give access to.
From July 2019 Brødrene Aa’s distinctive ‘SEASIGHT’ design will be seen sailing through a completely new environment, an urban one.
“This is a move that will surprise some in the industry, but one we see as a natural progression for this ambitious business,” stated, Rolf Sandvik, CEO,The Fjords. “Oslo is very different from Flåm, but we believe it should demand the same degree of operational responsibility and environmental care – especially seeing as it is EU Green Capital of the Year 2019. We want to set new standards for the urban environment, as we have done for the natural one, and the silent running, highly efficient, zero emission Legacy of The Fjords will allow us to do so.”
