Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS is to sell two of its older vessels to Ukraine-based ferry operator Ukrferry. 

As informed, the duo has entered into an agreement for the combined freight and passenger ferries, the 1989-built Kaunas Seaways and the 1987-built Vilnius Seaways.

The ferries are expected to be delivered in July, according to DFDS.

Previously deployed in DFDS’ Baltic route network, the ships have been on time charter to Ukrferry for several years, sailing on routes in the Black Sea.

“The sale will affect the employment of around 70 crew members that DFDS will seek to employ in our own route network to the greatest possible extent,” the company said in a statement.

DFDS added that it expects to gain a profit of around DKK 20 million (USD 3.1 million) for the ferry pair.
