Seaview Shipping Services Limited managing director Durga Prasad has deferred the arrival of their new boat to January, next year.

Mr Prasad said they were supposed to have the boat coming in last month from Australia but then they decided to put it on hold.

“This has been a busy period and we’ve a lot of things on our plate at the moment,” he said.

“But our new boat will definitely arrive in January, next year.”

In an earlier interview Mr Prasad said the company is investing approximately $11.6 million (A$7million) into buying this boat. The new catamaran (Fantome Cat) is 30 meters long and could carry up to 300 passengers. Mr Prasad said they were yet to identify any specific route for the new vessel and this will be confirmed once it arrives into the country.

Other shipping companies who are expected to get in new boats are Goundar Shipping Services and Patterson Brothers Shipping Company Limited.
