As communicated earlier DFDS and Godby Shipping have established a long-term co-operation with Godby Shipping buying the two storo sideport vessels Lysvik Seaways and Lysbris Seaways and chartering them back to DFDS for a period of minimum three years.


Godby Shipping today Monday 27th December 2021 at 1430 hrs Finnish time took formal ownership of Lysvik Seaways in Skogn, Norway.


Lysvik and Lysbris will continue in their present trade mostly serving Norske Skog forest product shipments out of Norway to UK and continental Europe.  The vessels will keep their well established names and they will continue under NIS flag with their present crew.


Delivery of Lysbris will take place in January 2022.


Some get small Christmas gifts and some get big ones. A ship with a weight of 4.250 tons must be considered a big one.
