Does anyone know where the Kaitaki has disappeared to? I see that she is due back in service on the 9th of September. I go past the ferry terminal every day and normally see the Kaitaki around 7.15am loading up. But for the last couple of weeks she hasn't been around. I checked the Interislander website but can not find out any informationas to what is going on.

Also when does the Purbeck head back to England? I see she is been used currently to carry freight across cook straight while the Kaitaki is not around.

I wonder if the Interislander Line would be brave enough to keep the Purbeck. Seems a great ship for carrying freight.

I can confirm that the Purbeck has been sold to a Venezuelan company called Consolidated de Ferrys C.A. (Con Ferry for short). She will be handed over sometime between 25th September and 6th October this year.

Challenger is Kaitaki. Her official name is Challenger, whilst her marketing name is Kaitaki (Maori for Challenger)
