Sorry for being late... Rapido and his brother Expresso were built in1972, in a portuguese shipyard. They made part of the fleet of two car ferries and 3 passenger boats that made the crossing between Setúbal and the then new tourist complex Torralta in Tróia. There were also 4 (four!) Hovermarine HM2 (of of them can be seen in this fotage https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/inauguracao-do-conjunto-da-gale-em-troia/
