The high speed ferry Fløyfjell suffered damage to its hull when it allided with a floating dock at the port of Tromsø, Norway. The Fløyfjell’s hull are carbon-based and not made from steel had small hole about the size of a fist. The owners of the ferry stated that the damage can occur to any vessel that goes too hard against a quay and has nothing to do with the hull. This response is due to sister ships of the Fløyfjell had suffered major damage to hulls due to a design error. The Fløyfjell had just started service this month.
