The former 1980-built Irish Sea ferry LE RIF is entering its final stage of refurbishment in the Cantieri del Mediterraneo ship repair yard in Naples.
The 100% Moroccan company Detroit World Logistic Maritime (DWLM) has purchased her in March 2016.

The vessel has already served on the Strait of Gibraltar for the ill-fated company IMTC.
Investor behind DWLM is a Moroccan logistics and transport group of companies, headed by Mr Hakim Rahmouni.
The ferry will soon enter service on the Tanger Med – Algeciras route. If a second vessel can be found, then a Nador – Almeria can be considered too.
