The Fast Flying Ferries [video]

The Fast Flying Ferries were fast hydrofoils from the Dutch public transport operator Connexxion. It was developed in the Soviet Union and manufactured in Ukraine. The Fast Flying Ferry brought passengers from IJmuiden to the Central Station of Amsterdam in about 25 minutes. Saling to or from Amsterdam with the  speed of 65 kilometres / hour over the North Sea Canal in this fast hydrofoil was a very nice experience.

By too few passengers. Connexxion stopped the Fast Flying Ferry service per 1/1/2014.  The ferry service was no longer profitable.
