The Trinidad and Tobago’s government newbuilding HSC A.P.T. JAMES made a short stop in Malta while en route to Trinidad. She was built at the Austal Vietnam Shipyards and delivered on November 5, 2020. She will continue her long journey making another stop to Algeciras before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
In Trinidad, she will replace the HSC JEAN DE LA VALETTE of Virtu Ferries, which was chartered by the government of Trinidad in May 2019 in order to serve the local line and which will return to the Mediterranean service on the Valletta-Augusta or Catania line.
