Shippax News Bulletin – 22

- In association with Interferry

Dear Subscriber,

Please find the headlines of the news added to the Shippax website during week 22.

Shippax’s Philippe Holthof was travelling in the Mediterranean basin earlier this week to prepare articles for the July/August edition of ShippaxInfo. He gained first-hand experience of the lengthened, hybrid and scrubber-equipped CRUISE ROMA. The world’s longest ro-pax ferry, he travelled with CRUISE ROMA - Grimaldi Lines’ Mediterranean flagship - from Barcelona to Civitavecchia. Philippe also stopped in Trieste to talk to Roberto Prever of NAOS Ship and Boat Design, the naval architects behind the successful ‘Visentini series’ who have several interesting newbuilding and conversion projects on the drawing table. Read all about it in the July/August edition of ShippaxInfo.

Have a nice weekend!
