Hornblower Marine Services To Offer New Services

Thursday, August 19, 1999
Hornblower Marine Services will be responsible for the complete start-up and operating infrastructure, in addition to the daily operations of Bahamas Fast Ferry Service Limited. This new ferry service will provide high-speed transportation between Nassau, Harbor Island, Eleuthera and other destinations. The 114 ft. (35 m) Solent Class, high-speed catamaran, designed by FBM Marine and built by Pequot River Shipworks, will be used to transport visitors, as well as Bahamian residents (177 total) at speeds of 35-40 knots. Hornblower has entered into yet another venture, this time with Virginia-based MetroMarine Holdings for a passenger ferry service between downtown Hampton and downtown Norfolk. Known as HarborLink, the service will be fully operated and privately financed by Hornblower, with additional funding provided by CMAQ federal funds. In order to commence the service in time for the high season, MetroMarine attained the M/V Flyer, a 90 ft. (27.4 m) Wesport monohull through a bareboat charter agreement for operation on the ferry route. Renamed M/V Zephyr, the vessel operates at up to 20 knots carrying 149 passengers.
