SAAREMAA 1 on the way to replace fire-damaged HOLIDAY ISLAND

August 11, 2022

A replacement ferry for HOLIDAY ISLAND could carry passengers between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia by mid-August. HOLIDAY ISLAND suffered an engine room fire in July (see video).

SAAREMAA 1 left Trois-Rivières, Quebec, and will be tested in Caribou, Nova Scotia, Northumberland Ferries Ltd said. in a press release.

The evaluation is expected to take up to 10 days. If “everything fits,” it should arrive at Wood Islands shortly thereafter, PEI MP Lawrence MacAulay said.
