FRS: Successful Start Of GOLDEN BRIDGE On Motril – Melilla

Since 27 June, GOLDEN BRIDGE connects the ports of Melilla and Motril in just 5 hours.

With 186 meters in length, a capacity for 1,500 passengers, 500 vehicles and cargo, the GOLDEN BRIDGE has a restaurant, bar, premium zone, lounges, children’s play area and outdoor terrace. The introduction of this larger and faster ship represents a significant improvement on this route. Crossing time has gone down from 7 to 5 hours.

The ferry that operated this route previously, VOLCAN DE TAUCE, will cover the Motril – Tangier Med line instead.

GOLDEN BRIDGE is on charter to FRS for six months, owned by Galaxy Seaways SA, and taken care of by A-Ships Management SA in Athens.
