June the 5th, 2024 – The largest Jadrolinija vessel in the history of the fleet is now in function, operating along the Croatia-Italy line to Bari.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the largest Jadrolinija vessel to ever be part of fleet, called, “Dalmatia”, set off on its first voyage to the Italian coastal city of Bari on Monday.

Eight departures from Croatia to Italy per week are planned for Dalmatia, and in the peak summer season, the largest Jadrolinija vessel will make the trip as many as ten times a week in each direction (from July the 22nd to August the 25th). The voyage across the Adriatic to Italy lasts about 7.5 hours, and the price of a one-way ticket is 40 euros, with a return ticket costing 70 euros.

Its average speed is 17 knots, and its capacity is 1,800 people and 350 cars. In total, it is 134 metres long and 24 metres wide. It boasts 8 decks and is worth a massive 18 million euros. On board there are also two restaurants, three bars, a grill bar, a playroom for children, and enjoyable open decks.

As stated above, this is an investment worth 18 million euros, and it brings something new in international maritime traffic for Croatia. For Jadrolinija itself, it means an improvement of the overall service on international lines with Italy.

The largest Jadrolinija vessel was originally named “Oslofjord” until it was changed to Dalmatia recently. It built back in 1993 in the Norwegian shipyard Fosen Mekaniske Verksteder AS.

It was reconstructed in 2014 at STX in Finland according to the project of OSK Design, which works for the world’s leading shipping companies.
