Förde Reederei Seetouristik will introduce a faster and higher capacity vessel to the Melilla – Motril route.
The ro-pax ferry GOLDEN BRIDGE will start operations on the line next May.
This former Japanese ferry can make the Melilla – Motril crossing in 5 hours, meaning a reduction by 2 hours on the current crossing time.
She has a capacity for 1,500 pax and 500 cars.
Until last year this ferry was used between Korea and China, until she was acquired by A-Ship Management.
She is currently being refurbished in Perama.
