Line

 

 

Another one of the long Framnæs ro/ro series, started her commercial sailings in 1974 for Tor Line; the good project and quality of these ferries is testified both by the number of sisters produced and by the great flexibility of the ferries, which were once lenghtened by about 50 metres. This ferry was also lenghtened by Tor Line in 1977, where the Vlissingen Shipyards added 26,7 metres to the original hull. As long as it’s common to this type of ferries, her career was divided between a great number of operators, including Fred. Olsen , Bore Line, Grimaldi and Sea-Link. After some years as the “Assi Scan Link” was sold to Gorthon’s company Rederi AB Transatlantic, engaged in sea crossings linking the two sides of Atlantic Ocean. Sold in 2006 to Aegean Cargo after the arrival in the Swedish fleet of the new “Transpaper”, was immediately reflagged to St. Vincent & Grenadines without changing her name, joining the fleet without an “Aegean” prefix. After various charters to some operators, including Anek Cargo and after two serious groundings, the ferry was finally renamed by the company as the “Aegean Sky”. The ferry was heavily refitted on Summer 2007, including the removal of the starboard side openings, then again chartered, mainly for services in Baltic Sea, but also in the Aegean. Her last trip before the sale for scrap, occurred in September 2010, was a charter from Black Sea to Pakistan.
