The sister ships FORZA and TENACIA —owned by Grimaldi Holding— will start a new 5-year bareboat charter with Grandi Navi Veloci, starting in February.
Broker sources suggest that the daily rate should be EUR 14,500 for the first three years, 14,750 for the fourth and 15,000 for the fifth. No options included for extending the period or for purchasing the ro-pax sister vessels.
Since September 2020 both the ferries have been operating for GNV in sub-charter from Trasmediterranea.
Both have a capacity of 2,000 lane meters and 1,000 passengers and are currently deployed on the routes linking Italy mainland to Sicily (Civitavecchia – Palermo) and Spain with the Balearic Islands (Barcelona – Palma).
