Vis

Jadrolinija's 1965-vintage Croatian coastal ferry Vis was originally built as the Danish-owned Sydfyn to connect Faaborg in Denmark with Gelting in West Germany. She was designed by Knud E. Hansen A/S, the famous Copenhagen-based naval architects, and is essentially a rather cute miniature version of their typical ferry designs of the era. The Vis has spent most of her long life on the Dalmatian Coast - but is shortly due for replacement. Onboard, not much has changed since 1965.
