A brand-new high-speed ferry service between Italy and Albania has been announced for the next summer season by the Albanian shipping agency Maritime Agency Princess Eneka.
The regular link is expected to sail from June and will be operated with the monohull ferry THE PRINCESS [link MarineTraffic] built in 2013 by the Italian shipyard Rodriquez,
She has a capacity for some 650 passengers and 58 cars. The vessel can reach a speed of 40 knots and the transit time should be 2 hours and half. The brand name of the link is still unknown. Currently the monohull seems to be active on the Aqaba – Nuweiba route in the Red Sea.
