Moby updates fleet with new ro-ro pair

Italy’s Moby Group has chartered in two new ships due to be operated in the Mediterranean on routes covered by Tirrenia and Moby Lines.

According to local publication Ship2Shore the Milan-based company, headed by Vincenzo Onorato and his sons Alessandro and Achille, fixed a 5-year time charter from Siem Group for two 4,100-lanemetre ro-ro vessels built by the German shipbuilder Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft.

A few weeks ago Moby’s CEO Alessandro Onorato announced in Malta that the company will update its fleet by introducing three new cargo ships, thus intensifying its presence within the Maltese market. The first ship will be deployed in the first quarter of 2018 while a further two new ro-ros are expected to be delivered in late 2018.
