Skjersholmane–Utbjoa Ferry was an automobile ferry which connected the island of Stord to the mainland in Vindafjord. The route was operated by Hardanger Sunnhordlandske Dampskipsselskap[1] and ran between Skjersholmane on Stord to Utbjoa on the mainland. The last ferry to operate the route was MF Rosendal, which had a capacity for 50 cars and 260 passengers. The route was terminated from 27 December 2000, when the Bømlafjord Tunnel, part of the Triangle Link, opened.[2] In 2000 the ferry transported 59,974 vehicles and 133,857 passengers.[3]
