Tallink extends charter

Estonian ferry owner and operator Tallink says it has extended the charter of its 30,285-gt ro-pax ferry Atlantic Vision (built 2002) to Marine Atlantic of St John’s, Newfoundland.

The ship, previously known as Superfast IX, was due to end a three-year charter to Marine Atlantic in November this year. The charter has now been extended to November 2015, by which time the ship will have operated under charter to Marine Atlantic for a total of seven years.

Marine Atlantic operates four large ro-pax ferries between the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
