Part of the Tirrenia Ferry Fleet Sharden

Sharden along with her identicle sister ship, Nuraghes is part of a new generation of ferries offering a very fast speed of service for ferries of their size. Standard cruise ferries travel at speeds of around 20 knots. With 4 Wärtsilä engines that deliver more than 62,000 kW of power Tirennia Sharden travels at a staggering 30 knots. The creation of the vessels set a new satndard in ferry travel with the intoduction of Fast Cruise Ferries being a cross between standard cruise ferries and High Speed Catamarans. With it's high speed services Naraghes can make the crossing between Civitavecchia and Olbia in less than 5 hours or the route between Genoa and Porto Torres in less than 8.

Sharden can accommodate 3000 passengers on board as well as more than 1000 cars.

Despite the option of the fast crossings the Sharden highspeed services are generally only used daytime sailings in high season, when the vessel travels to high capacity therefor justifying the higher consumption of fuel. On quiet sailings Sharden will travel at a speed of between the 19 and 23 knots.
