Ropax SAGA, former STENA SAGA, arrived in the port of Ancona after being chartered for the summer season by the local ferry company Adria Ferries, company part of Frittelli Maritime Group.

The CEO of the company, Alberto Rossi, confirmed to Ferry Shipping News that the vessel will be operated on the routes linking Italy (Ancona or less likely Bari) with the port of Durrës, in Albania.

SAGA remained unemployed for some weeks off the port of Gibraltar following a long lay-up in Uddevalla, Sweden.

Rossi said that, “if the port of Bari will solve in a very short period of time the existing limits of depth, SAGA may be deployed on the Bari – Durrës line, otherwise she will be active from Ancona”.
