You could help by creating the pages.The MS Moby Otta is operated by the Italian operator Moby Lines, servicing the route between Livorno and Olbia, Italy. Built in 1976 by Flender Werke, Lübeck, West Germany, she initially operated as the MS Tor Scandinavia for Tor Line. In 1982 and 1983 Tor Scandinavia was chartered as an expo-ship, and her name was temporarily changed to MS World Wide Expo, at which time she sailed throughout Asia and the Middle East. Following this time, she reverted back to Tor Scandinavia until 1991. In January and February 1991 the vessel was rebuilt at Blohm + Voss in Hamburg, Germany, after which time she took on a new name, MS Princess of Scandinavia. In November 2006 the vessel was taken over by Moby Lines, and has operated since this time as Moby Otta.
The career of the vessel has been eventful. In 1981, Tor Scandinavia was used in the first series of a BBC soap opera called Triangle (the following two years they used the MS Dana Anglia, now the MS Moby Corse). In 1976 nine windows were smashed, and the ship began taking on water, during a storm, while in 1989 a fire broke out on board between Gothenburg and Harwich. In September 2010, two tourists were killed when a vehicle ramp was moved as they were driving off the vessel.
