Jadrolinija Header Page
This is the header to a series of pages devoted to the passenger ships and ferries of Jadrolinija.
Jadrolinija is a Croatian sea shipping company founded in Rijeka on 20 January 1947 as an extension of various smaller shipping companies which operated along the Croatian coast since 1872. Jadrolinija is a state-owned company and its main mission is connecting Croatian island to the mainland by operating regular passenger and cargo transport services. The company mainly operates car ferries on domestic routes along the Croatian coast, as well as international routes across the Adriatic Sea to Italy (to ports at Ancona and Bari).
Jadrolinija currently operates a fleet of 56 vessels (5 large ferries used on long range and international routes, 37 smaller ferries used for local passenger service, 8 catamarans, 1 hydrobus and 5 conventional ships) with a total carrying capacity of 3,600 vehicles and 27,540 passengers. In 2007 Jadrolinija transported a total of 9.4 million passengers and 2.4 million automobiles.
