Ponte Ferries: New Competitor on Malta-Sicily

A new fast ferry service between Malta and Sicily will be introduced next summer with the former Fred. Olsen Express catamaran BONANZA EXPRESS, renamed HSC ARTEMIS.

The new joint venture will be a competitor to the existing operator, Virtu Ferries.

Ponte Ferries will operate a catamaran between Grand Harbour, Valletta, and Augusta, Sicily.

Ponte Ferries is a joint venture between Magro Brothers Investments Ltd and Merill Invest Ltd, owned by entrepreneurs brothers Michael and Julian Zammit Tabona (Captain Morgan), and businessmen Mario Muscat and Fabio Muscat.
