Excerpt: High-speed Sea Service is the name of a class of high-speed craft developed by and originally operated by Stena Line on European international ferry routes. The HSS 1500 have an in-service speed of 40 knots (75 km/h). Several patents were registered to Stena Line in the development of the HSS, and four vessels were ultimately completed during the late 1990s; Stena Explorer, Stena Voyager and Stena Discovery were built to operate around the British Isles with Stena Carisma built for Scandinavian use. The newest of the craft was re-named HSS Discovery after being sold to a ferry company in Venezuela during 2009. Three larger vessels were purchased, each capable of transporting up to 1,500 passengers at a time: Originally two HSS 900 vessels were ordered, the second one was scrapped - whilst being only partially (30%) complete - following bankruptcy of the shipyard.

Up until 2006, this had been three return services per day.
