Our modern fleet includes the Stena HSS (High-speed Sea Service), the world's largest fast ferry, is the ideal choice if time is of the essence when travelling to Ireland or Holland. The HSS, the size of a football stadium, is powered by jet engines and is capable of speeds of up to 46 mph.

The Stena HSSs operate on:-
Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire - 99 minutes crossing time
Stranraer to Belfast - 105 minutes
Harwich to the Hook - 3 hours 40 minutes

The new Stena Forwarder is the fastest conventional ferry on the Irish Sea making the crossing from Holyhead to Dublin Port in approximately 3 hours, around 45 minutes faster than the vessel it replaced on this route. The Stena Forwarder is also the first ferry to arrive in the Irish capital in the morning, so passengers miss the bottlenecks caused by the morning rush hour.

Stena Line operates a traditional ferry on its Fishguard to Rosslare route, that allows journeys to be made at a more leisurely pace and with the full benefit of our extensive on-board facilities. The sleek Stena Lynx complements this route and whisks you across the South of Ireland in less than 2 hours.

If Holland is your destination, our North Sea fleet offers two distinctly different styles of crossing, the HSS a state of the art luxury journey, offering the fastest direct route to Holland or a relaxing overnight cruise on the ferries Stena Britannica and Stena Hollandica.
