Our fleet

Rødne operates one of Norway’s biggest fleets of express boats, including catamarans with advanced carbon fiber hulls designed for high speeds. 

The 14 boats owned by Rødne include ten express passenger boats, two ambulance boats and two traditional car and passenger ferries. Our two biggest boats have a capacity of nearly 300 passengers each and our fastest express boat can do about 35 knots (65 kph).  

In April 2020, a new flagship, our first battery-powered boat Rygerelektra joined our fleet. The new boat is Rygerdronningen’s sister ship and has a future-oriented focus on sustainable tourism and great experiences. Both boats were designed and purpose-built for fjord cruises and sightseeing, and they have a capacity of 297 passengers each. 

The names of all our boats start with ‘Ryger’, which is the ancient Norse word for people from our district, Ryfylke. 


Rygersol is our newest addtion to our fleet in Bergen 2024. It’s a lightweight and fuel-efficient catamaran, with a spacious lounge and kiosk, all on one level. Explore the beautiful fjords of western Norway with Rygersol!  



Full-electric Rygerelektra was delivered in April 2020. Rygerelektra is a world record holder: No other electric boat can go as far or as fast on a single charge, which is also a climate measure because it saves 270,000 liters of diesel per year.
