Several ferries that are anchored in the Venezuelan municipalities of Anzoátegui and Nueva Esparta will be transferred to the Dianca shipyard (Diques y Astilleros Nacionales Compañía Anónima).

The ferries are: MARÍA ROSARIO (former PURBECK), CONCEPCIÓN MARIÑO, HSC LILIA CONCEPCIÓN, ROSA EUGENIA (former COUTANCES), HSC TALLINK AUTOEXPRESS 2 (refloated 40 days after having sunk) and MARÍA LIBRE.

CARMEN ERNESTINA is in the shipyard of the Araya Peninsula, after sinking in 2016 in Puerto La Cruz.

The only operational ferry is the HSC VIRGEN DEL VALLE II, which operates on two of the four engines.

What this transfer means is unknown
