Bolidt & Texelstroom

One of the most visually impressive, and environmentally friendly, new passenger ships that will enter service this year is the 135m long, 1,750-passenger capacity, double-ended ro-ro ferry, Texelstroom. Built in Spain at La Naval shipyard, the vessel will be operated by Koninklijke NV Texels Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming (TESO) to provide regular services between Den Helder and the Dutch island of Texel.

The design of the ferry is the result of a partnership between the naval architects, C-Job, and Design Studio Vripack, which was responsible for the interior arrangements. Onboard the ship Vripack tried to capture the peaceful and general feel of dutch island Texel. The lighter colours represent the sandy beaches on the North Sea side, and the brown shades the Wadden Sea tidal flats. By using this colour scheme, Vripack wanted the island experience to begin as soon as passengers board the ship.
