Croatia’s largest ferry company, Jadrolinija, have presented its latest acquisition on Friday in Rijeka…

Jadrolinija recently signed a purchase agreement with Norwegian transport conglomerate Fjord1. Jadrolinija to purchase a modern carbon fibre catamaran built in 2011 in Norway. On Friday in the Adriatic port city of Rijeka the catamaran was presented for the first time.

The capacity of the catamaran, which has been decked out to a high standard, is 295 people. It is 38.50 metres in length and 10.20 metres wide and can do a maximum speed of 33 knots. The catamaran is worth more than 5 million euros, reports Poslovni dnevnik.

“Buying this new catamaran will contribute to creating a stronger Jadrolinija. This means competitiveness for Jadrolinija in concession tenders which are before us, more efficient connectivity to existing catamaran lines, more comfort for our passengers and a higher level of service. With prices of used passenger ships in the last 12 months growing, it was necessary to promptly respond to this opportunity, and it is a good price for a catamaran five years old with a very attractive design,”Alan Klanac, CEO of Jadrolinija, said earlier.
