Stewart Island Experience sells vessel

23 December 2004

Stewart Island Experience sells vessel to Fullers Northland

Stewart Island Experience Ltd has announced that it has sold its new 23-metre catamaran, the Stewart Islander to Fullers Northland in the Bay of Islands. Fullers Northland, which operates the “Hole in the Rock Cruise,” lost its vessel last weekend after it ran aground.

Commenting, Phil Caskey, Chief Executive of Stewart Island Experience said, “While we have been very pleased with the feedback from visitors who have travelled on the Stewart Islander, and with the vessel’s performance on Foveaux Strait, its sale does allow us to design and build a larger purpose-built vessel that will take both small goods and passengers together. At the same time we will look at an additional vessel that size-wise is better suited for the Paterson Inlet Cruises, particularly now that we know what our concession allows us to do.

Our intention is to continue with the new timetable that we have established, utilising the Southern Express and Foveaux Express that we purchased with Stewart Island Marine Services. Stewart Island Experience remains committed to providing an excellent level of service to both the Stewart Island community and visitors alike and is confident in the future of tourism on Stewart Island”.

Stewart Island Experience is a joint venture company between Sharan and Phil Caskey and Real Journeys.
