Guangzhou Shipyard has delivered the first of two Moby’s new generation ferries, MOBY FANTASY.

MOBY FANTASY will depart China in the coming days and cross two oceans to then reach the Mediterranean where she will enter service on the Livorno-Olbia route this summer.

With its 237m length, 32m width and a gross tonnage of 69,500 MOBY FANTASY is the largest passenger ferry built so far worldwide, says Moby. It has a capacity of 3,000 passengers and 3,850 lane meters of roro deck.

The new flagship of the Moby fleet will arrive at the port of Livorno by mid-May.

She is the first ferry in the world to obtain EEDI Phase 3 certification with emissions savings of over 50% compared to traditional ferries used on similar lines.

A second ferry, MOBY LEGACY will follow later.
