Norwegian ro-ro 'Bohemund' of 1975
Fred. Olsen & Co's ro/ro ferry "Bohemund", built by Ankerløkken Verft Florø A/S, at Oslo in August 1982. When built in 1975 she had a gross tonnage of 3,974 but was lengthened by 30 m in 1991, raising her gross tonnage to 6,135. In 1987 she was sold to Lloyd Sardegna Compagnia di Navigazione of Italy & renamed "Isola delle Perle"; in 2006 her owners were taken over by Moby Lines, also of Italy, under whose ownership she is still sailing (as of March 2013).
