Moby lines has purchased the 11,907gt/1975 built Galaxy (ex Comarit ship Banasa) from European Seaways who had saved the ship from the beaches of Aliaga just a short time previously.
The vessel will be renamed Moby Kiss and will operate Livorno-Bastia. Moby Lines has also purchased the 22,161gt/1982 built Wind Perfection (above), better known as the Olau Britannia (I) which went on to become the Bayard, Christian iv and was Swansea- Cork’s Julia prior to her present floatel role for C-Bed. To be renamed Moby Zaza, the ship was to be handed over as early as 15th December ready for her voyage to the Mediterranean and another new life on the Nice-Bastia service that reopens in June 2016 after an absence.
C-Bed sold the Wind Perfection as part of the new strategic focus towards smaller and more advanced and flexible hotel vessels.
