Spirit III Sale Reaps $27M

Wednesday, July 12, 2006
The TT-Line has sold the Spirit III for up to $20m more than it paid for the ship in 2003. But with cost of modification work done to make the ship suitable for Bass Strait, the TT-Line will probably only keep about $3.7m from the sale, The Mercury reported. It also has to pay its shipbroker more than $752,500 in commission. Mediterranean operator Corsica Ferries would pay $82.5m for the ship TT-Line bought for $62.2m. The identity of the buyer and the sale price had been kept confidential since a memorandum of understanding was signed last week. The axed Spirit III will sail from Sydney for Devonport for the last time on August 27. Corsica Ferries would collect the ferry from Devonport in early September.
