With up to three sailings per week from the UK (Portsmouth) to Spain (Bilbao) the AT Ferries superferry provides fast, convenient and economical travel.


Acciona Trasmediterránea, the largest shipping company in Spain for the transport of passengers and cargo and one of the largest in Europe, will reinforce the company’s international strategy with the new Bilbao to Portsmouth ferry line.

The ship assigned to the new Bilbao to Portsmouth line is the superferry "Fortuny".

AT Superferry

One of the most modern and comfortable ships in the fleet, with a capacity for 1,000 passengers, 330 vehicles -cars, caravans, coaches and 1,800 linear metres for rolling stock.

The Fortuny superferry has 10 decks and is one of the company's most modern ships. Completed in June 2001 at the Navantia shipyard in Puerto Real (Cádiz), the Fortuny previously sailed between the Spanish mainland and the Balearic Islands, providing a broad range of quality services and a faster trip (23 knots) than conventional ferries. It also has a car-deck for 330 vehicles (cars, caravans, buses) and a large cargo capacity (1,800 linear metres) to ensure sufficient space for ro-ro traffic between Portsmouth and Bilbao.

The Fortuny superferry has state-of-the-art technology. It was recently fitted with advanced propellers that drastically reduce energy consumption and air pollution. This new propeller design was made possible since the company and other Spanish research companies are involved in high-tech projects aimed at having a modern efficient fleet, in line with the development and sustainability criteria which guide ACCIONA's activities
