March 8, 2024

Moby Vinci and Sharden have been transferred from the control of Onorato’s Moby to Grandi Navi Veloci (GNV), a company owned by the MSC Group, as anticipated. The transaction, valued at EUR 109 million, marks the conclusion of the broader restructuring plan for Moby. This restructuring was recently finalized with a EUR 352 million loan provided by Gianluigi Aponte, the founder of MSC.

Following the transfer, Moby Vinci and Sharden will be renamed GNV Sirio and GNV Auriga, respectively. They are slated to operate on the Genoa – Palermo regular route and the Genoa – Porto Torres service.

With these additions, Grandi Navi Veloci’s fleet now comprises 28 ships serving 31 routes across 7 different countries.
