MOBY VINCI and SHARDEN to be sold to MSC

January 6, 2024

Moby has officially announced that two of its ferries, the ro-pax units MOBY VINCI and SHARDEN, will be sold to a company controlled by the MSC Group in the coming months.

Specifically, the ferries are to be acquired by Aponte’s Conglomerate Maritime Limited for a total sum of EUR 109 million. This sale is part of the shareholder loan provided by Mediterranean Shipping Company as support for Moby to repay debts and finalize the financial restructuring plan with creditors, which was approved last summer by the Court of Milan.

Last year, billionaire Gianluigi Aponte’s company acquired a 49% stake in the struggling Moby for an amount of up to EUR 150 million.
