The 2006 built High Speed Craft MARIA DOLORES was spotted lately at Tarifa, Spain where she’s chartered working on Tarifa/Tanger Route.

She was delivered in February 2006 of which she arrived on the 17th March berthing at Pinto 3 upon her arrival.

During her charter she arrived at Tarifa, Spain on Sunday 19th August 2012 operating for inter-Shipping. Since its formation, Inter-Shipping has been interested in operating between the port of Tarifa and Tangier Ville. Initially, the port authorities of the Tarifeño port did not allow her due to the dimensions of the ferries, higher than those allowed in the Tarifa dock.
