Since 2010 we have been connecting Tuscany to the Island of Elba, with 16 one-hour trips per day. Our timetables are convenient, the fares affordable and the ships always on time.
Blu Navy was founded in 2010 as an Italian shipping company operating in the cabotage and passenger and freight transport sector. By opening the first connection between Piombino and Portoferraio, Blu Navy is a young company that has made itself the embodiment of a specific need by rapidly growing in the quality of its service. In a short time it has become a true symbol of the Island of Elba.
WHAT GUIDES US
The company’s commitment and spirit have enabled it to forge links with associations and private investors, to collaborate with maritime professionals who know the sea well, and to create synergies with the entire Island of Elba.
A dedication that confirms Blu Navy’s objective: to offer a shipping service that is always pleasant, punctual and close to the people.
FROM BEGINNING TO END
We work every day to ensure that every passenger can share a comfortable, convenient and safe journey with us.
To achieve this, on-board assistance is always available and, until a few minutes before boarding, you can consult our live chat for information, purchases and ticket changes.

The Hoteliers' Association on the Island of Elba and Elba Sol joined the company. The company has introduced various tariff concessions for residents and owners of second homes on the Island of Elba, meeting with enormous approval from Elba's community.
Blu Navy was publicly praised for its on-time connections to the Island of Elba. Large investments are made in the commercial sector by participating in the most important national and international Tourism Fairs.
The M/V Acciarello is purchased and a complete restyling of the ship's lounge and bar is carried out. The Company is the first to provide a passenger assistance service on board, by introducing the role of Hostess. The Company moved its registered office from Milan to the Island of Elba and changed its corporate designation from Srl to SpA.
The N/T Ichnusa was purchased and a new connection between Santa Teresa Gallura (Sardinia) and Bonifacio (Corsica) was opened.
The entire fleet came under the ISM management of BN di Navigazione with its operational headquarters in Piombino. Both the website and the logo design have changed.

BN di Navigazione Spa announces the extension of winter services on the Piombino-Portoferraio route with 3 sets of crossings.
In a difficult historical period, Blu Navy redoubles its commitment by bringing the summer schedule to 16 trips with the use of two bi-directional ships.
Blu Navy is increasingly successful and, after the summer season, confirms its presence in the area, guaranteeing continuity of service all year round thanks to the comfort and punctuality of the 2 ships, with 16 trips a day from Piombino to Portoferraio and back.
