The delivery of Seajets’ newly acquired vessel, the COLOR VIKING, is expected to be completed by the end of February.

The ship is currently located at the port of Sandefjord in Norway, where a Greek crew is making final preparations for the delivery.

The COLOR VIKING ceased operations on the Sandefjord-Stromstad route on November 22, 2022, and was sold for a price of EUR 8 million.

It is anticipated that the vessel will arrive in Greece before March 15 and will undergo conversion before being introduced into the domestic ferry service.

COLOR VIKING laid up because of new corona measures

By | 2021 Newsletter week 50 | No Comments

Color Line has decided to take COLOR VIKING temporarily out of operation on the Sandefjord-Strømstad route on Monday 13 December. This is due to a significant decrease in the number of passengers after the government introduced new national corona measures and requested limited social contact.

The decision entails, in this round, notification of redundancy to just under 100 employees.
