|This typical Swedish car ferry was Jadrolinija's first second-hand buy after Croatia declared its independence. This partly made up for the loss of four ro-ro ferries in the early phase of the war. In 1992 a similar ferry was bought from Sweden, renamed [i]Žigljen[/i]. Both serve the isle of Pag (Prizna - Žigljen route).
Built 1970 at Kalmar Varv A/B, Kalmar, Sweden (428). Particulars presently are: 354 grt, 157 nrt. 65.00 x 11.70 x 2.50 m. 60 cars, 300 passengers. Four Scania Vabis diesel engines, two fixed-blade propellers. 792 kW, 8 knots. 1970 FÄRJA 61/290 (Swedish State Traffic Agency). 1991 PRIZNA (Jadrolinija, Rijeka, Croatia).
