Today appear the Scandlines ferries Tycho Brahe and Aurora af Helsingborg. Built as railway and car ferries they serve the route Helsingör - Helsingborg since 1992.
The bridges of these both danish-swedish sisters are very different. Also compared to the previous ferries (until 1991) there are huge deviations: for example the ship's width had been more than doubled from 13,3 m to 28,2 m. For that reason the ships appear a little bit bulky, but otherwise they allow an extremly fast loading and unloading in 10 minutes.
General data :
ship yard: Tangen Verft A/S Kragerö | power: 4 Wärtsilä 9840 KW |
14,9 kn | l = 111,2 m | w = 28,2 m | d = 5 m | 1250 passengers | 238 cars
