Palumbo Group has embarked on a project to renovate eight ro-pax ferries for Italian operator Tirrenia at its shipyards in Messina and Naples, Italy.
The project started in 2017 when Palumbo Group carried out cosmetic works and refitted public spaces onboard Sharden, Nuraghes and Moby Niki, and will continue with similar refurbishments on Athara, Janas and Bithia this year. In 2019, sister ships Vincenzo Florio and Raffaele Rubattino will be renovated.
“The idea behind the new restyling is to refresh the image of the company’s brand with a more distinguishable and dynamic look so to attract both families and business travellers heading to Sardinia and Sicily for holidays and appointments,” said Palumbo Group in a statement.
