Mistral is presently on charter to Faraoe Island based Smyril Line until December 2023.
Directly after that Mistral will be chartered to the Spanish roro operator Suardiaz Shipping Lines. The intention is Suardiaz new service between Vigo, Spain and Liverpool, UK.
Before the new charter Mistral will go through a five-year class renewal docking including installation of systems for increasing the energy efficiency of the vessel and painting with low-friction bottom paint.
The charter contract is including options for a period of up to three years. For more information on Suardiaz, see suardiaz.com
The roro market is presently very strong with good rates and we think this new charter is positive for our company and the crew onboard Mistral.
