Sea View Shipping managing director and owner Durga Prasad is awaiting a report from the marine department in South Korea over his new vessel.

Speaking to the Fiji Sun yesterday, Mr Prasad said an official from the Korean marine department has already inspected the vessel on Sunday.

“Once I receive the report from Korea then I will submit all the documents to the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) for approval,” he said.

“I can’t go to MSAF until I have that report in my hand. I want everything to be cleared from Korea as I don’t want to do any other modification or maintenance once the boat is in Fiji. I also want them to submit the photos of the boat once everything is done.”

Mr Prasad said the cost of this new ferry is around $5 million and hopes that his vessel is going to open up the market.

“I don’t want to see any sort of monopoly and this ferry, which is a very fast one is going to service Savusavu, Taveuni and Lau. A lot of customers are requesting me if I could get another vessel soon because of the demand that is out there”
