13/08/2008 - Fincantieri Yard - Ancona - Vessel under construction is the greek ferry SUPERFAST II.

A big thank you to David (davidships) who confirmed, that SUPERFAST II is correct... :-)

According to some information of, I believe, this must be SUPERFAST II. (

But I am not sure as this ship was actually not built by Fincantieri, but by Nuovi Canterie Apuani... I will be glad if someone can confirm... or correct me. Thanks in advance for your help!! :-)

The following link contains a list of all ships that were built at the different Fincantieri Yards. As you can see SUPERFAST II is not a part of this list...
But to be honest I could not find even one ship that was constucted at the Fincantieri Yard at Ancona in the relevant period (08/2008)


I hope this shot might be interesting for many of you! :-)

If interested, please find a photo of the completed SUPERFAST II here:

SUPERFAST II is right.

Forward section built by Fincantieri at Ancona; aft section by Apuania at Carrara.

Not sure where they were joined, though completed at Carrara:
