I think that the greek company is AG Ferries but i'm not sure.
Moby Gum was sold for scrapping soon when she became very dangerous for transport passengers because she had very big problems with engines.
Moby Rider is a good ship for transport truks but not for transport passenger because she hasn't fin stabiliser and she is too slow (12 hours for go to Livorno to Olbia are too much).
In the future there is the possibility that Moby will charter a Visentini ship for transport freight but next summer if you want to go in Sardinia and stay in your camper during the voyage you must take Loyd Sardegna.

Moby Rider now is in disarmament in Genova and next summer she will not voyage for Moby. Moby Rider is also for sale and a greek company is interested to buy the ship.
