Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Hornblower Marine Services announced the appointment of Bill Annand as Director of Marine Operations for Hawaii Superferry. Hornblower Marine Services, based in New Albany, Ind., is contracted to operate the long-awaited passenger ferry between Honolulu and the islands of Maui and Kauai. Passenger service is scheduled to begin in August 2007.

Annand will initially manage approximately 100 crew members, including unlimited officers, and non-rated union and non0union shipboard staff. He is responsible for daily marine operations including crew management, regulatory compliance, training, budgeting, repairs and maintenance as well as record keeping. Currently Hawaii Superferry is operating a single vessel. With plans to add a second vessel in 2009, his responsibilities will expand to oversight of 200 employees and the requisite daily operations.

The first of the two Hawaii Superferry vessels is the Alakai, a 107-meter high-speed vessel with the capacity of 900 passengers and up to 250 vehicles including trucks and buses. The Alakai has a service speed of 32 knots. Annand previously served as Director of Operations of Hornblower Marine Services-Wisconsin, Inc. and managed Lake Express, a high-speed car and passenger ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon, Michigan.
