On 14th April, 2021, the Tasmanian Prime Minister granted permission for TT-Line to sign the contract with Finnish shipbuilder Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) for the construction of two ropaxes.

A day later, both parties signed a formal contract remotely via video conference.

This latest contract brings RMC’s total number of vessel projects underway at the shipyard to four – the two TT-Line ropaxes, the car and passenger ferry ‘Aurora Botnia’ for Finnish shipping company Wasaline and the car and passenger ferry ‘MyStar’ for Estonian shipping company Tallink, as well as four multi-purpose corvettes for the Finnish Defence Forces.

The construction of the TT-Line ropaxes will begin in the Spring of 2022 with the first vessel delivered at the end of 2023 and the second at the end of 2024.
