Croatia’s largest ferry company, Jadrolinija, are to build a new ship worth 50 million euros which will connect the country’s outlying islands with the mainland, Jadrolinija has confirmed.

The new ship will weigh 10,000 tonnes, will be 120 metres long and will have a capacity of 220 vehicles and 1,500 passengers. The ship will also feature two large salons with cafes and other amenities.

The first 3D computer visualisation of the new ship, which is designed to sail in testing conditions on the Adriatic Sea, has been created, revealed Novi List.

The ferry will operate between the port of Split and the islands of Hvar, Korcula, Lastovo, and Vis.

“The basic idea is that the new ship will be able to sail in the harsh conditions of sailing on the open sea and connect destinations where it takes at between five to six hours to travel with several stops on the way. When speaking of the outlying islands, it should be said that those are not only Lastovo and Vis but also Korčula and Hvar. Jadrolinija intends to replace the ‘Lastovo’ ship, which was built in 1970 and carries a capacity of only 60 vehicles, with this new one,” Jadrolinija’s Managing Director Alan Klanac said.

The new ship is expected to join the fleet in 2020.

Last year Polish ship design company Remontowa Marine Design & Consulting won the public tender for the development of the concept and classification design of the ship.
