The Leonora Christina is a fast passenger ferry which was built in 2011 by Austal Ships, Perth, Australia. She was in active service between Rønne (Bornholm in Denmark) and Ystad in Sweden.

Villum Clausen had to take over during that period. It was buyed on April 2017 by Fred Olsen to provide services from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
