It is great to start not only a new year but even a decade with a delivery of a new and impressive ferry. On 7 January we took delivery of our fourth 6700 lm Ro-Ro ferry from Jinling Shipyard in China. The ferry was handed over to us at 15:08 Chinese time, which due to the “8” is a lucky time(!). The time in Denmark was due to the time difference 08:08, which is an even more lucky number!
On 8 January we did the traditional flag change where the Danish flag was hoisted. HUMBRIA SEAWAYS is now being made ready for departure from Jinling Shipyard, which depending on weather conditions will take place soonest possible. On the homebound voyage HUMBRIA SEAWAYS will call Singapore for taking onboard a few containers of Owner’s supply as well as bunkering. We are looking forward to welcome the ferry in Vlaardingen in February.
As mentioned above it is our fourth mega ferry from Jinling within 11½ month. We have two more to go and they are expected to follow in March and by end of October this year.
