Molslinjen launches newbuild ferry Hammershus

Danish ferry operator Molslinjen has launched its new 158-metre Ro-Pax ferry Hammershus at Rauma Marine Constructions.

The Finnish shipbuilder’s first newbuilding order, Hammershus was originally designed to carry 400 passengers but later upgraded to 720,

Central to the Bornholm line’s strategy of attracting more Germans to Finland, Hammershus can also carry about 90 freight trailers.

To sail from September between the Rønne and Køge, the vessel is scheduled for delivery to Denmark on June 27.

It has been relocated to a drydock for equipment assembly and interior work, followed by trial runs and commissioning.

Though the cargo will mainly consist of trucks, the ship can also transport hundreds of passenger cars, if needed.
