Moby put half of Toremar’s fleet up for sale

June 28, 2024

“We already cleared that we would not take part in the coming tender for the maritime continuity, so we sell the ships.” That’s what Moby said to Ferry Shipping News to explain why Toremar, a company controlled by Onorato Armatori and active on the maritime links between mainland Italy and the islands surrounding the Toscana region (Elba, Capraia, and Giglio), put up for sale four of its eight vessels.

More specifically, available for sale are:

  • Rio Marina Bella (2004 – 896 passengers and 85 cars)
  • Giovanni Bellini (1985 – 589 passengers and 60 cars)
  • Liburna (1980 – 692 passengers and 60 cars)
  • Schiopparello Jet (1999 – high-speed ferry – 145 passengers)

The other four vessels in Toremar’s fleet are the 1991-built Stelio Montomoli, the 1980-built Marmorica, the 1980-built Oglasa, and the 2005-built Giuseppe Rum.
