Twin City Liner is a fast catamaran specifically built by Båtservice Mandal for serving between Vienna and Bratislava on the Danube river. The vessel has a service speed of app. 32 knots or 60 km/h which allows Twin City Liner to go from city center to city center within 75 minutes.
Due to the success of Twin City Liner a sistership has been ordered, a new terminal facility in Vienna is under construction. In May 2007 Twin City Liner ran aground but could resume operation only two days after the incident. A similar incident happened in July 2009 and again service could be resumed after only two days since the damage to the vessel was negligible.
