New Tasmanian Ferries Delayed

The Victorian Ports Corporation (VPC) has confirmed that the owner of the Spirit of Tasmania ferries, TT-Line, has cancelled a contract with a German shipyard to build two replacement ferries. The shipyard has had funding difficulties as explained earlier.

TT-Line now has a Memorandum of Understanding with a Finnish company to build the ferries. The first ferry is due in 2022.

The BCNA and other local organisations continue to meet VPC representatives to discuss plans for the redevelopment of Station Pier.
