North America, Gibraltar, and now Baltic Sea for NOVA STAR
End of March Polferries will start to operate NOVA STAR on Gdansk – Nynäshamn (Stockholm). This news has been announced by Polferries CEO Piotr Redmerski to the Polish Press Agency PAP, writes Maritime Poland (in Polish).
The vessel was built for, but refused by LD Lines, was used between Portland and Yarmouth, ended up on the Gibraltar Strait for Intershipping, where it operated two years and finally, is about to leave Gibraltar for the Baltic Sea.
NOVA STAR has been bought by “a Polish company”.
Polferries has a new ferry on order but needed to have a better ship than the actual veteran WAWEL, in order not to lose the market. Stena Line introduced a ferry on Gdynia – Nynäshamn last year, as a result of the growing traffic between Poland and Sweden.
