Baleària: 25 years linking regions and connecting people
We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our founding as the leading Spanish maritime transport company. Our company has been growing steadily since 1998, when the chairman and sole shareholder, Adolfo Utor, spearheaded the creation of Baleària.
In just a quarter of a century, we have expanded to six countries, where we operate 25 routes with a fleet of more than 30 ships and a workforce of 1,800 people. We are a benchmark in sustainability and innovation, and we have reached milestones in national and global maritime transport, from the first high-speed vessel connecting the Balearic Islands with the Spanish mainland in 2001 to the launch of the innovative Eleanor Roosevelt fast ferry in 2021 and the first electric ferry in Spain, which will come into operation on the occasion of our anniversary.
We see ourselves as a civic-minded and responsible company, and over these 25 years, we have shown time and again our commitment to the regions in which we operate and to public service. We are known for our dynamism, and we are clear about the strategic principles that have enabled us to grow over the last 25 years: sustainability and the determination to be increasingly eco-efficient, and innovation as an essential element to remain competitive.
