Earlier this week, a final agreement was signed for the cargo- and passenger ferry PRINCE.
Strandfaraskip Landsins writes on its webpage that PRINCE will sail on the route to Suðuroy when Smyril will be docked on September 20th.
SSL Hilmar Eliasen is pleased that SSL hereby will receive a substitute ship that has approximately the same capacity as Smyril.
PRINCE has side propellers both at the front and the rear and should therefore be very manoeuvrable. PRINCE has recently sailed as a hotel ship in the North Sea and in connection with this the hotel part of the ship was refurbished.
