Balearia’s first of two LNG-powered ro-pax ferries, has been floated out on March 30.

Named HYPATIA DE ALEJANDRIA she is expected to enter service on the Balearic Island services in early 2019.
The pair will be the first LNG ferries of this size in the Mediterranean. They each have a capacity of 2,100 freight lane meters, 810 passengers, and 150 cars.

Recently the Spanish company cancelled the order for another LNG vessel to be built by La Naval, a shipyard in financial trouble.
