Former Swansea to Cork ferry ‘Julia’ re-sold

Moby Lines buys C-beds large offshore wind-hotel ship to continue operating in the Mediterranean

Offshore accommodation ship company C-bed has sold ‘Wind Perfection‘ (ex Julia, Christian IV, Bayard, Olau Britannia (I)) to Italian operator Moby Lines as part of their new strategic focus towards smaller and more advanced and flexible hotel vessels. The empty space in the fleet filled early in the new year.  It is understood that Moby Lines will reinstate the former Julia as a vehicle and passenger ferry.  It has been reported Wind Perfection will be handed over to her new owners as early as the 15th of December, with Moby Zaza speculated to be her new name.

Moby Lines operate 13 routes to the Islands of Corsica, Sardinia, and Elba from the Italian and French mainland. Their fleet has a large number of veteran ferries built in the 70’s and 80’s, as well as newer tonnage such as Moby Aki (2005), Moby Tommy (2002), and Moby Wonder (2001). It is not yet clear which route (or routes) Wind Perfection will operate on.
