Finnjet and Viking Line


I've no idea if anyone reads these forums anymore, but here goes anyway:

I recently bought Viking Line's 50th anniversiry book (Tie meren yli by Pär-Henrik Sjöström) and stumbled on a very interesting Finnjet-related bit: apparently when planning for a ship for the Helsinki-Stockholm service in the early 80s (which eventually materialised as Mariella), SF Line also seriously considered buying or chartering a second-hand ferry instead of building a new one. The ship they especially had their eye on was Finnjet, and in September 1982 SF Line negotiated with Enso-Gutzeit about buying or chartering Finnjet. Obviously nothing ever came of this, but clearly this wasn't as far-featched as I thought... ;)

Kalle

would anyone ever accuse you of being far fetched!

Wonder what the time table would have looked like?

According to the book they considered daily departures from both ports. It would have required 29 knots, so should not have been a problem for Jetti. I'd presume the timetable would have been similar as that on the Turku route... although they probably would have soon reverted to a more traditional timetable and better fuel economics.

I don't think it's even been mentioned in public before. It certainly isn't mentioned in the excellent book Enso-Gutzeit laivanvarustajana (1992), which talks at lenght about attempts to find alternate employment and/or co-operators for Jetti in the early 80s.

I haven't heard about this, either, and it certainly would have been interesting to see the timetable! Though you could't sail faster in the archipelago, of course it would have been possible to use full speed at sea (almost have of the voyage). Another question is, would it have been very clever, cause either the departure time should be VERY late, or the arrival time should be VERY early... But maybe the great and famous brand of Finnjet could have been good in the competition between Silja and Viking.
