On 22 June 2015 m/v Jolly Palladio, the fourth and last in a row of four ro-ro container vessels, has been delivered to the Italian shipping company Ignazio Messina & C. by the South Korean yard STX Offshore & Shipbuilding in Jinhae, thus completing the building project of the owners' claimed world's biggest con-RO vessels ever built to date.

Ltd. and delivered between end 2012 and beginning 2014, again under the supervision of SeaQuest.

The STX built vessels are 240 metres long by 37,50 wide; with a 3.900 TEU and 6.350 metres of ro-ro cargo capacity, 21.5 knots speed and equipped with high-tech anti-pollution system such as an innovative gas cleaning system able to operate both in navigation and in port.
