Nostalgic Return Of POVL ANKER Will Charm Bornholmers

Molslinjen A/S has a plan for the renovation of the reserve ferry POVL ANKER. By next year the ferry should be repainted in a new scheme, and the passenger areas will be refurbished.
The idea is to bring back the grandeur of POVL ANKER by painting her in the original colours of 1978, when she was delivered. The funnel will wear the Molslinjen logo though, not the DSB black and red colors.
