The company

Liberty Lines was established in 1993 under the name of Ustica Lines by the Captain Vittorio Morace who, following important professional experiences in the main Italian shipowning groups, decided to found Ustica Lines with the aim of combining what the sea has separate, the islands.

Thus was born, with a single hydrofoil, the fast shipping company Ustica Lines which, choosing the best collaborators, equipping itself with avant-garde ships, seizing promising market opportunities and being able to count on the constant support of its customers who have shown that they appreciate its services, has been able to develop and renew itself, reaching the world record in the fast transport of passengers on the sea.

In 2016, following the acquisition of the shipping company Siremar – Compagnia delle Isole and Traghetti delle Isole, Ustica Lines changed its name to Liberty Lines and assumed the current operational structure which sees it manage a fleet of over 30 fast vessels (between Hydrofoils, Catamarans and Monohulls) with which it is able to guarantee a fast and reliable service to over 3 million passengers who choose to travel every year between Italy, Croatia, Slovenia as well as Sicily and smaller islands.
Liberty Lines today is a modernly organized company, the sixteenth shipping company in Italy by turnover, the first in the world in the fast maritime transport of passengers, the only one in the world to have a shipyard that carries out the work exclusively on its own means.

The Company, which has maintained its headquarters in Trapani, relies on the cooperation of more than 600 employees and is the trustee of public transport agreements that have been promoted by the Sicilian Region, the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility to ensure passenger transport even in economically disadvantaged market conditions.
