Since 1983, the company has operated a regular international passenger, car and freight service using a large, modern, multi-purpose ferry named MV Norröna. The original vessel was a Swedish-built ferry formerly named Gustav Vasa (built in 1973). This was replaced by the Norröna, built in Lübeck, Germany in 2003. The large purchase price, some €100 million, gave the operator financial difficulties, and Smyril line eventually had to receive public support from the Faroese Government to stay afloat. Today the holding company is owned by Framtaksgrunnur Føroya (Faroese Development Trust) 33.6%, the Faroese Government 23.6%, TF Holding 20.7% and the Shetlands Development trust 6.8%, the remaining shares are owned by several minor stakeholders.
- The weekly service serves the following ports:
The crossing between Hirtshals and Tórshavn takes 38 hours in winter and 30 hours during the summer schedule. The onwards journey to Seyðisfjörður takes another 15 hours excluding a layover in Tórshavn  and this only during the summer schedule. Until the end of the Summer 2007 timetable Smyril Line also served Lerwick in the Shetland Islands. On 11 November 2008 Smyril Line announced that it would end services to Scrabster, Scotland and Bergen, Norway. On 1 September Smyril Line announced that it would end services to Hanstholm (summer) and Esbjerg (winter) in Denmark and move all its Danish ferry operations to Hirtshals.
Smyril Line Cargo operates a fleet of three vessels: Eystnes, Hvítanes, and Mykines. Cargo is also shipped on the Norröna ferry.
Evatnes and Hvítanes connect Tórshavn, Hirsthals, and St. Petersburg.
The M/V Mykines is the newest ship of the fleet, added in April 2017. Built at the Norwegian UMOE Sterkoder shipyard in 1996, it was previously operated as Auto Baltic for Bore shipping company in Finland. It measures 138.5 metres in length and 22.6 metres in width. As a RoRo ship it also takes unaccompanied cars as freight, providing an alternative to the Norröna. It will sail from Rotterdam via Tórshavn (stops North-bound only) to Þorlákshöfn, just south of Iceland's capital Reykjavík.
