Caronte & Tourist trying again to enter the Croatian ferry market

June 9, 2023

Four years after the last attempt, the Italian ferry company Caronte & Tourist is trying to enter the local Croatian cabotage market again.

Local media report that the newcomer has been already authorized to operate a line between the ports of Zadar and Preko by the Short Sea Maritime Agency.

The vessel to be deployed on the line should be the 1978-built and double ended ferry ULISSE.

But Caronte & Tourist will have to face the opposition expressed by the Municipality of Preko.
