Major Ferry Problems In New Zealand - Only One Ferry Operational !

Neil

Deckhand
News reports from New Zealand have said that the New Zealand ferry ' Kaitaki ' which sails on the Wellington to Picton service is reported as breaking down on the 6th November 2011.

700 passengers were due to sail on her but only 200 of them were able to be accommodated on another ferry

The ' Aratere ', which also sails on this service, is reported as having engine problems and is not operating at present !

This only leaves the ferry ' Arahura ' to operate what should be a three ship service.
