German shipbuilder Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) has secured orders for two additional Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) ferries from Siem Car Carriers, according to Clarksons Platou Shipbroking report.

The two 4,000 lane meter RoRos are due for delivery in the second half of 2019.

FSG is about to deliver two 11,000 dwt RoRo ships to Siem Group.

Named Alf Polak and Maria Gracia Onorato, the duo will be chartered in by Italian shipping company Onorato Armatori once delivered. Onorato Armatori plans to deploy the RoRo ferries on routes between Sardinia and Sicily.

They will be the largest RoRo ships in the Mediterranean, as they can carry up to 310 semi-trailers, according to FSG.

Or not.  Seems there has been a change of heart and Alf Pollak has been chartered to CLdN/Cobelfet.  Looks like her sister might be chartered out as well.  Onorato are saying there isn't yet the demand in the med to justify deploying them there.

Theres a big dispute going on in Italy regarding the takeover of Tirrenia by Onorato.  Onorato are in the process of effectively merging Moby into the holding company of Tirrenia and it hasn't gone down well - it seems promises were made about investing in Tirrenia, yet Onorato have said they plan to sell 6 ships in the next 3 years and have also chartered out this new tonnage.
