The shipping company owns three of these vessel, all operating to a tight commuting schedule between cities in the Netherlands.

Originally the ships were manufactured in the former Soviet Union, but because of economic problems these were the last three vessels to be built. The current owner bought them and they were renovated for use as public transport ferries.

During the renovating process Vesconite was discussed as the stern tube bearings for all three vessels, because of the high RPM of the propeller shaft friction had to be low and water swell could not be allowed.

Each ship sails with three Vesconite stern tube bearings.
