Grimaldi Group of Naples has started a new route linking Civitavecchia, Catania and Valletta with the ro-pax vessel Euroferry Malta (formerly Louis-Dreyfus-owned, Martinoli-operated Massilia and Levantina Trasporti’s Linda).
Two trips a week have been scheduled, although the Italian group has not ruled out more sailings. The vessel, built at Visentini in 1995 with a capacity of 150 trailers, 400 cars and 600 passengers, joins the ro-ro Eurocargo Valencia, which is already in service on the route from Catania to Malta, thereby boosting frequency on this service to four trips a week. The introduction of the Euroferry Malta also allows Grimaldi to offer two departures a week on the Catania-Genoa link.
