Baleària’s New Eco Ferry Connects Ibiza, Formentera

Spanish company Baleària’s latest addition, the eco fast ferry Eco AQUA, has started sailing between Ibiza and Formentera.

The 28-meter-long vessel is the first from the batch of four eco fast ferries ordered by the company. The unit was launched by Spanish shipbuilder Astilleros Gondan in early November at its GRP division.

Capable of carrying 350 passengers, the eco ferries have been designed focusing on eco-efficiency, comfort and speed during navigation.

The remaning three ferries from the batch, which will be named Eco TERRA, Eco AIRE and Eco LUX, will be finished between the end of this year and the middle of 2018.

The quartet will feature a wave-piercing bow which displaces water towards the side tunnels in order to maintain speed. Capable of reaching a maximum speed of 28 knots, the ferries are designed to be able to operate in the different short distance trips that the shipping company makes in the Balearic Islands.
