Interislander has confirmed it will buy the former CLdN roro VALENTINE to provide resilience and secure freight capacity heading into the busy summer and Christmas period.

Interislander leased the roro in November 2021 to provide freight capacity across Te Moana-o-Raukawa Cook Strait while repairs were undertaken on the KAIARAHI gearbox.

KiwiRail has exercised the purchase option, buying the ship from Gotland Shipping (see our news from 2 December 2021).
