Blue Line International
Blue Line International was started in 1993. Its first passenger ship Kraljica mira sailed towards Italy carrying humanitarian aid and refugees. Kraljica mira was sailing at that time under the flag of SEM Maritime Company (SMC). In 1997, the passenger ship Split 1700 joined the same company. In 2003, Blue Line International replaced SMC.
The passenger ship Ancona, the largest ship in the Adriatic Sea was bought in 2003. It has been sailing together with the passenger ship Split 1700 for several years on Blue Line's regular route. They maintain the seasonal lines between Ancona and Hvar and between Ancona and Vis.
