According to recent information, Jadrolinija’s DUBROVNIK (1978, former DUCHESSE ANNE) was sold, probably to a Greek ferry operator for the Italy-Albania service.
However, Croatian media supports the idea that she might be scrapped.
The Irish-built vessel was serving on the Bari – Bar and Bari – Dubrovnik lines since 1996 and currently is at the Viktor Lenac shipyard in Croatia.
The ship was initially offered for sale on October 15, 2022, following a tender announced by the Croatian national shipping company at an estimated minimum price of EUR 2.85 million. However, none of the interested companies offered the minimum price and the ship was led to a second tender, where she was eventually sold at EUR 1,8 million.
What remains to be seen is who the mysterious buyer is.
