Arranmore Fast Ferries was set up in June 2007 by Seamus and Louise Boyle, both natives of Arranmore Island.
The service commeneced with ‘Realt Na Maidne’, a Redbay stormforce 11 fully cabined vessel which dramatically reduced the crossing time from island to mainland.
Seamus then introduced a back up vessel ‘The Girl Gray’ to the fleet, which is a 43ft aquastar. He uses this vessel for angling trips and tours as well as ferrying passengers to and from the island at peak periods.
In 2010, he added MV Morvern to the fleet. This boat originally came from Scotland and was once owned by the well know scottish firm ‘Calmac’. This is a passenger and freight ferry which serves Arranmore island and freight only to Tory Island
