All four 2,500-passenger ro-pax ferries will have 536 cabins and 3765 lane metres (for 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 optimisation technologies.

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

The shipbuildin 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.
