A new ship for Heligoland

Our new catamaran for Heligoland is an absolute premium product and impresses with its modern design, comfortable seafaring behavior and groundbreaking technology.


From 2018, the new building will replace the well-known and popular "Halunder Jet" on the journey from Hamburg via Wedel and Cuxhaven to Helgoland.

The 56.4m long newbuilding has been specially developed for Heligoland traffic and can carry up to 692 passengers, who can look forward not only to the generous sundecks but also to the comfortable journey. 

With a speed of 35 kn and a state-of-the-art motion damping system, the journey across the open North Sea is a fast and comfortable maritime experience even at rough sea.

On two decks there is pace for up to 692 passengers.  The passenger area has larger panoramic windows and an atrium for bright, light flooded salons and we will poil you with food and beverages served at your seat. Each seat has a USB port for convenient charging of mobile devices.

Don't miss the extraordinarily generously designed open spaces on the newbuilding. In addition to the open spaces on the rear upper deck as on the "Halunder Jet", the newbuilding has additional seating on the sundeck on the so called bridge deck.
