HSC VITTORIO MORACE, with a length of 39.5 meters and a capacity of 251 passengers, is the world’s first HSC hybrid fast unit. It is equipped with two MTU-Rolls Royce hybrid engines, allowing it to operate entirely in electric mode within ports before recharging the batteries while sailing at 30 knots in open sea.

It is the first of the 9 innovative fast hybrid ships that will join the fleet by 2026.

The vessel was launched at the Astilleros Armon shipyard in Navia, Spain.
