Project Cargo – EEMSLIFT DAFNE with 2 High Speed Craft at Malta – 11.04.2022

On Monday 11th April, 2022 the 2014 built mpp vessel EEMSLIFT DAFNE entered Grand Harbour, Malta with interesting deck cargo of 2 High Speed Craft.

She had the Incat Crowther 42 High Speed Craft GOZO EXPRESS for Virtu Ferries, Malta for Malta-Gozo-Malta route as the EXCELLENCE OF MAJESTIC.

Another interesting vessel was the 2000 built Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV) POLAR BAIKAL which was sold in February 22 to an undisclosed buyer. GC Rieber’s 50/50 joint venture with OOO Polarus had a charter agreement with Sakhalin Energy for crew-boats but due to ongoing military action in Ukraine and related sanctions against Russia, GC Rieber decided to sell her. She was laid up since 2020.

This was not EEMSLIFT DAFNE first call to Malta….In fact she was seen with her previous name as ABIS DUNKERQUE with her former owner ABIS Shipping which was founded in 2007 and in 2016 all ships had to be sold due to Financial Difficulties and were berthed at Palumbo Malta Shipyard.

She left Grand Harbour, Malta renamed as EEMSLIFT DAFNE back to 11th January, 2017 –
