Jadrolinija has acquired OSLOFJORD, primarily for its international route between Croatia and Italy.

The ship is expected in Croatia at the end of this month, after which it will go to a shipyard, probably Viktor Lenac.

OSLOFJORD was built in 1993 at the Swedish shipyard Bruce Shipyard, was equipped in Norway and completely renovated in 2014 in Finland. Most cabins were then removed. A crossing between Dubrovnik and Bari is to take about six and a half hours. [timetable]

The vessel has been used a day ferry between Sandefjord and Strömstad, with tax free sales as main income. Since both Croatia and Italy belong to the EU, duty free sales will not be possible.
