Introducing: the vessels!

San Frangisk and San Pawl do not need any introduction. Both vessels, formerly operating on the Malta – Sicily route, recently returned to Malta from the company’s international route between Venice and Adriatic ports.

Virtu were official carriers to His Holiness Pope John Paul II in 1990. San Frangisk will be remembered for the memorable visit to Gozo of HH Pope John Paul II, the re-entry in Grand Harbour is part of Malta’s recent history. Virtu were also official carriers to HH Pope Benedict XVI on his Grand Harbour crossing in 2010, this time on San Pawl.

Virtu Ferries, a Maltese shipping company with a proven record operating international routes between Malta and Sicily, Venice and Adriatic ports in Croatia and Slovenia, Spain and Morocco in the Straits of Gibraltar, the Caribbean and the Red Sea, are delighted to be given the opportunity to operate the domestic route between Gozo and Malta. This coincides with the launching of their domestic operation between La Spezia, Portovenere and Cinque Terre in Liguria, Italy.

The vessels have a cruising speed of 35 knots (65 kilometres per hour), well within the 45-minute requirement for the crossing.

Will you be hopping on the Fast Ferry?
