Hi Volger ,she has a ramp. it is on the left (port) side just aft of the name on the bows, you can see the difference on this head-on view.
In Malta and Pozzallo she berths port side to the quay, though there may have to be some alterations to the quays so as to accommodate her.

Nice work! Interesting to see how closed up the stern is now in these cats and the bow doesn't lift looks like there is a ramp on the right hand side (It's too early to work out if it's port or starboard lol) as you look at this pic

I wonder if she will be operating alongside the JEAN DE LA VALETTE on the Malta to Pozzallo, Sicily run or will she using the old Malta-Catania one.? or at that any other Sicilian port.

Excellent Walter! Impressive part of our export income.

Hi Tony. Thanks. No, I wasn't in a canoe. I was on the shore and she turned as she headed towards me and before she could run aground. Cheers! Walter

Walter, Great shot. Hope you were not in a canoe! Cheers.
