On February 9, the 83 meter long ro-ro passenger ferry Tourist Ferry Boat Primo ran aground in the Tyrrhenian Sea on Ischia Island, Italy. The vessel had departed from Casamicciola with 8 fuel-trucks and drivers with 7 crew. The ferry was blown ashore after suffering engine problems. A tug was dispatched and attempted to pull the ferry off the beach without success. The Tourist Ferry Boat Primo was released a few days later. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
