Aboitiz spends $15m on two ferries.

PHILIPPINE ferry operator Aboitiz Transport System has splashed out $15m to acquire a pair of ro-ro passenger ferries from Japan"s Kansai Kisen Kaisha and its affiliate Diamond Ferry under a deal signed today.
Aboitiz spokeswoman Lilian Cariaso said both 1992-built vessels, which were bought at a cost of $7.5m each, were due to be delivered next month.

The first ship is the 9,684 gt Sunflower Nishiki operated by Osaka-based Kansai Kisen Kaisa, while the second is its sister vessel, the 9,684 gt Sunflower Kogane, which was operated by Diamond Ferry in Oita.
Both vessels were built by Kanasashi Shipbuilding at its Toyohashi shipyard. Each has a capacity to carry nearly 2,000 passengers and 400 teu.

Ms Cariaso said the purchase of the vessels would help Aboitiz ?modernise its current fleet to achieve greater efficiencies?. The vessels are younger than the company"s existing SuperFerry fleet.

The Philippines coastguard banned all SuperFerry vessels from sailing for 12 days in September for safety checks after the 1986-built, 7,269 gt Superferry 9 capsized and sank in Zamboanga Del Norte in the southern Philippines.
