Oslo-based Color Group is getting out of the pure ro-ro business and otherwise trimming its fleet with the announced plan to sell its two oldest vessels.

The sale of the 1,775-lane metre ro-ro Color Carrier (built 1998) and the 19,763-gt ro-pax ferry Color Viking (built 1985) will leave the company with a five-ship fleet, one that will be more heavily weighted to passenger traffic, comprising three medium to large ropax ferries and two large cruise ferries.

“Both the Color Viking and the Color Carrier have undergone upgrades in recent years and the ships will be put up for sale on the global market,” the company said in an announcement.
