Ship2shore.it have reported that TTT Lines are to return their Visentini Ropax twins to their owner Stena Roro, who themselves acquired the ferries from TTT lines at the end of 2013. The Trincaria and Partenope currently operate on the Naples to Catania service and are to be replaced by a different pair of ferries chartered on a 24 month bare-boat contract, extended to 36 months. Details of the replacement tonnage have not yet been released, but the existing crew are expected to transfer to the new ships. Trincaria and Partenope both have capacity for around 950 passengers (with 208 cabins) and around 2000 lane metres of freight.
