The Jadroplov electric ferry, the first large Croatian ship to transport 1,000 passengers and 156 cars without the emission of harmful gases, could sail in 2024, writes Total Croatia News.

The prototype was designed by the Split company “Classis.”

Predrag Čudina, a ship designer, told Slobodna Dalmacija more: “The ship will be built for Split’s “Jadroplov,” with which we have signed a contract for the development of the project. So far, several electric boats have been built in Croatia, but we are talking about the first large Croatian ship to transport a thousand passengers and 156 cars, or about twenty buses and trucks and 89 small vehicles.”
