Nova Star out, Bay Ferries in.. return of an oldie?

So after eating 32million dollars, the Nova Star is out, and Bay Ferries is now negotiating a contract to take over the Portland to Yarmouth  ferry run.

This is Probably a good thing – Bay operates the Digby/Saint John run, as well as the Northumberland Ferries from Pictou to PEI. They also previously ran the CAT on this route, prior to its Cancellation.

They will need a Suitable boat, and one that is immediately available. The NovaStar will presumably be available, though if NovaStar Couldnt run it profitably, who knows if Bay Can. There is however a Ferry available Locally. The Princess of Acadia. Recently retired from the Digby/Saint John run, she is owned by the feds, but was previously operated by Bay. She is available, possibly for charter or Purchase, and a known commodity to Bay.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
