Hull 089 to call at Colombo Port

M/V Saint John Paul II, (Hull 089) afloat at the Incat shipyard in Hobart, Tasmania, will call at Colombo Port later this month for refueling during its maiden voyage to Malta.

According to Malta Independent, it is due to be delivered to ship owners Virtu Ferries on January 24 and a few days later, the vessel will commence a 9,600 nautical miles (17,780 kilometres), 20-day journey to Malta.

The vessel’s maiden voyage will see her crossing the Indian Ocean, calling at the ports of Fremantle in Western Australia and Colombo, before passing Somalia, at the Eastern tip of Africa, to transit the length of the Red Sea where she will call at the last refuelling port of Jeddah before entering the Mediterranean via the Suez Canal.
