Admiral Nevelskoy, Russia’s first Project PV22 ice-class Ro-Pax ferry, departed on its maiden operational voyage on Wednesday, June 2.

The vessel left the Port of Korsakov in Sakhalin and sailed for the Kuril Islands with 40 passengers and 37 tonnes of assorted cargo on board.

The voyage will last a little over 24 hours and will include two stops prior to the final destination of Shpanberg Island in the southwestern Kurils.

Measuring 75 by 16 metres, Admiral Nevelskoy was built for local operator Sakhalinlizingflot by United Shipbuilding Corporation’s (USC) Nevsky Shipyard. The vessel was handed over to its new owners in December 2020.
