Ferries Tiiu and Piret to arrive within next two days
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.
