Genoa-based shipping group Grendi will re-enter the market as a shipowner.

On March 25th, the company, controlled and led by the Musso family, will sign the purchase of the 2014-built Wedellsborg through a new company called Navco, with ownership split 50-50 between Grendi and the Giovanni Fagioli’s Finaval group.

Wedellsborg has been chartered by Grendi since 2021 and is currently deployed on routes linking Marina di Carrara, Olbia, Cagliari, and more recently, Tunisia and Algeria for Maersk.

The vessel, built in Italy at Cantiere Navale Visentini, measures 179 meters in length with 2,600 lane meters and features a stern ramp.
