- The Stena HSS Explorer arriving at Dun Laoghaire port in Dublin, Ireland on the 17th of July 2014. The high-speed Stena (HSS) is the world's largest fast ferry, traveling at a speed of 46 miles per hour (74 km/h), although it is capable of doing over 70 miles per hour (110 km/h). The Stena Explorer was constructed by Finnyards in Rauma, Finland. Three HSS 1500 class vessels were ultimately completed in 1996 and 1997. The first of the class, the Stena Explorer, entered service in April 1996, serving the Holyhead - Dún Laoghaire route and is still operating during the summer months.
