All four 2500-passenger ro-pax ships will have 536 cabins and 3765 lanemetres (for storing freight units). Onboard areas and cabins will be spacious, innovative, with modern amenities.

The new ferries will be LNG-ready as well as fitted with the latest energy optimization technologies.

Italian operator GNV (an MSC Group subsidiary) will take 2 ferries, and the remaining 2 will be delivered to Onorato Armatori (MOBY LINES/Moby Fantasy, Moby Legacy).

The shipbuilding contract includes an option for 4 additional ferries of the same type.

The first of the 4 ferries is due for delivery to GNV in 2021.
