"Queen of the Waves" , Supramar designed PT 150 hydrofoil (309grt; 250 pass.; 33 knots). Norwegian owners Johs. Presthus Rederi, Bergen started experimental service Las Palmas- Tenerife from Dec 1970 (4 trips/day; 90 min crossing) Weather and machinery problems resulted in termination of service about June 1971.

Thank you very much eddyw for your accurate information. Unofficially, and together with weather and machinery problems, Queen of the Waves suffered a great lack of support from maritime officials, as the then state owned Trasmediterranea was the only shipping line allowed to carry passengers between the isles.

Best regards, trenor
