Naviera Armas


Overview

Naviera Armas Ferries is a Spanish based ferry operator, founded in the 1940s. The company operates mainly in the Canaries, although from 2008 services were available to the island of Madeira and Portimão in Portugal, further north. At the end of October 2017 the Acciona group agreed to sell its 92.7% stake in the rival Spanish based ferry operator, Trasmediterránea to Naviera Armas. Both companies, although now owned by Naviera Armas operate independently of each other.
