Navy Seeks Ferry Vessel

Monday, June 29, 2009

The Passenger Vessel Association notified its members that the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC) has issued a Market Survey to ask about the cost and availability of U.S. ferry vessels. Anticipated delivery will occur on October 1, although the vessel owner may propose alternate delivery dates. The location of proposed usage will be Guam, Saipan and adjacent Pacific Ocean waters. The time charter will be for 12 months, with the possibility for three additional year-long renewals. The closing date for responding to the Market Survey is July 14, 2009.
PVA has a copy of the Navy’s full document with the Market Survey. Contact Ed Welch at PVA Headquarters at 1-800-807-8360 ext. 27 or ewelch@passengervessel.com. For further questions, contact Ms. Jessica Chu of MSC at 202-685-5519 (phone) or Jessica.chu@navy.mil.
