Although the jubilee of the ferry link between Świnoujście and Ystad is far behind us, this column has its own rules and can commemorate it once again, especially if our research brings something extra.
In this year's 3-4 issue of the Baltic Transport Journal we wrote about Gryf, the first ferry of the service, and now we’re returning to the topic. Take a look at the photo we got from the Trelleborgs Museum.
The new ship's name is painted on tarpaulin, which covers the old one (Finndana), while the home port, Helsinki, is painted out. The flag is still Finnish, and the "old" funnel mark informs that the former operator was TT-Line.
Gryf is just leaving Trelleborg after its last trip from Travemünde, and it had never looked like it does in that moment.
