Polferries have finally introduced the recently acquired ro-pax ferry CRACOVIA on the ever-growing Ystad-Świnoujście line.

The ro-pax ship was built in 2002 in Spain for Merchant Ferries, as a vessel in a series of five. She mainly served Trasmediterranea routes to the Balearic and Canary IslandS. After a stint in the Black Sea, she was sold to Polferries in May 2017. She has space for 64 cars, 124 trucks and 650 passengers.

Ystad Harbor is Sweden’s largest port for ferry services to and from Poland and this traffic has grown sharply in recent years. In 2016, truck traffic between Ystad and Świnoujście increased by 13%.
