Höegh Jacksonville is the first of two sister vessels with 6, 500 car capacity built by Daewoo-Mangalia Heavy Industries, Romania to be delivered to Höegh Autoliners’ operation this year. Both vessels will be operated by Höegh Autoliners through a long term bareboat charter from the vessels’ owners; Ocean Yield AS.

Ingar Skiaker, CEO says: “Taking Höegh Jacksonville into our operation is part of our fleet renewal program, replacing older vessels that are being phased out. The renewal program continues next year, when we start taking delivery of our New Horizon vessels, which will be the world’s largest Pure Car Truck Carriers, with a capacity of 8, 500 car equivalent units. The new vessels will add flexibility and efficiency to our trades and improve the service offerings to our customers.”
