Seajets has just announced having added the 88
Built back in 2000 by Austal Ships in Perth, Australia, the ship was formerly named HSC Villum Clausen, but it recently arrived at the port of Piraeus to join the Seajets fleet. Seajets told reporters last week:
“We feel happy and proud to welcome a ‘world champion’ to our fleet, as the new ship will contribute to the upgrade of Greek shipping and tourism, and will provide Greek and foreign travelers with the opportunity to travel with a unique, comfortable, luxury high-speed vessel.”
Powered by twin General Electric LM 2500 gas turbines, the ship can travel at speeds of up to 50 knots, and has 22,000 square meters of public space for passengers to enjoy. The ship also boasts of a platinum class VIP area, a business lounge, a restaurant, a bridge deck bar, a playground, and reception and shopping areas.
The addition of the “World Champion Jet” expands Easyjets’ fleet of 17 high-speed vessels and three passenger ferries serving 29 ports from Piraeus, Rafina
