Yamato is a Japanese-built passenger and vehicle ferry currently operated by Hankyu Ferry. During February 2019 it was announced that she had been purchased by Stena Ab subsidiary Stena RoRo who intend to make her suitable for European use and charter her out during 2020.
Stena RoRo has sold the former Japanese ferry STENA NOVA for further service following an extended period out of service.
Stena RoRo has purchased the ferry Yamato from the Japanese shipping company Hankyu Ferry. The vessel will be rebuilt at a shipyard in Europe and be fully adapted to European standards, after which it will be chartered out.
