WORLD’S FASTEST SHIP CHRISTENED BY ARGENTINA’S PRESIDENT
WORLD RECORD HELD FOR 30 YEARS

Thirty years ago, a ship built in Hobart by Incat Tasmania, Hoverspeed Great Britain, challenged for the coveted Hales Trophy which recognises the fastest commercial passenger ship to cross the Atlantic Ocean. The 74 metre Hoverspeed Great Britain left New York on her Transatlantic Challenge voyage arriving in at Bishop Rock on England’s south coast on 23rd June 1990. The crossing achieved in 3 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes.
 
The previous record had held for 38 years, the USS United States having taken it out in 1952 after a long list of Transatlantic Challenges by the great passenger liners over the previous century. Two Incat built ships have since shaved time off the 1990 Transatlantic record, 91 metre Catalonia (Incat 047) in June 1998,  and another Incat 91 metre Catlink V (Incat hull 049) in July 1998, the 2 day 20 hours and 9 minute record set by the Danish Catlink V still held today. It is the first time in the history of Transatlantic records (dating back to the 1860s) that THREE ships to win the trophy in succession had been built by the same shipyard.
