There are different types of ferries to travel to Island and Greek/Turkish coasts
Car ferries: They are mostly used to cover short distances and are more economical than bridges or tunnels. They are not though so much ecological-friendly and that is why some research is being done, so that marine power and solar energy can be used by ferries.
Catamaran: Catamarans have a larger width compared to classical types of ships and therefore they are more stable on the water. There is a type of catamaran that carries only passengers and another that carries both passengers and vehicles.
The Flying Cat: It is a catamaran type, with a special design that resembles to a cat.
