Bluferries exercises option for a second ferry in Greece
The company controlled by RFI will receive a sister ship of the just delivered Trinacria in 2020
Bluferries, Italian shipping company controlled by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana(RFI) and active on the two sides of the Strait of Messina, received this week the new ferry renamed Trinacria (ex Okeanos I) bought from Ocean Freedom Shipping Company and built in Greece by Perama-based Megatechnica shipyard. As from next December this new vessel will enter into service between the ports of Messina and Villa San Giovanni with a capacity to transport up to 400 passengers and 150 cars (or 23 trucks). Ship data: overall length 104 m, width 18 m and price €14.5m.
Trinacria will be followed in 2020 by a sister ship due to be built by the same shipyard in Greece since Blueferries officially revealed to have exercised the option for a second vessel at the same price; Ferrando & Massone of Genoa acted as broker of the deal.
