Tiiu, built for ferry operator TS Laevad in Turkey, is scheduled to arrive in Tallinn’s Old City Harbor at 12 p.m. today Sunday. Polish-built ferry Piret is expected to arrive before noon on Monday.
According to the Port of Tallinn, Tiiu is expected to enter line service on the Rohuküla-Heltermaa route connecting the island of Hiiumaa with mainland Estonia in mid-April. Piret will likely start on the Virtsu-Kuivastu route between mainland Estonia and the island of Saaremaa in the second half of April.
Both ferries are 114 meters long and can accommodate 150 cars, or 12 full-size trucks. Both have seats for 500 passengers on two decks, and will carry rescue equipment for 700 passengers.
