Adriatic Fast Ferries Mega Jet
Proclaiming a 35 travel between Tarifa and Tanger, this is the Mega Jet. Photo taken 5th April 2008, Piraeus.
Editor: If this is the Mega Jet, previously know as Thundercat this 30 knots ferry can carry up to 600 passengers and 125 cars. She was built in 1995 by Incat, Tasmania. She measures length 77,46 m, breadth 26m and 3.989 GT.
However, checking out the site advertised on her hull, www.frs.es, she seems to be called Tarifa Jet with a loa of 86,62 m, beam of 26m, 5007 GT and capable of a speed of up to 42 knots! According to FRS she can take up to 800 passengers and 175 cars..... I can only assume the FRS data is right.
