The first Marlin Vessel was launched in April 2015. The vessel was named by Paola Dominguez, a member of the Puerto Rico Boys & Girls Club with whom TOTE Maritime partnered. Paola’s name recommendation was selected from hundreds of submissions from members of the Club. For having the winning entry, Paola will be the guest of honor at Isla Bella’s inaugural arrival at the Port of San Juan and will receive a educational scholarship from TOTE Maritime.
The name Isla Bella translates to “beautiful island” in English and will serve as a reminder of the cultural and economic significance of the ships for future generations.
Perla Del Caribe
The second Marlin Class ship was launched in August 2015 and christened Perla Del Caribe which means “Pearl of the Caribbean” - another symbol of TOTE Maritime’s commitment to the islands.
