RIGA, Dec 21 (LETA) - The Freeport of Riga Authority has bought the "Baltic Kristina" ferry" for LVL 2.56 million through an auction today.

There was only one bidder for the "Baltic Kristina", sworn bailiff Ainars Susts said. Initially, ten or so foreign companies inquired about the auction of the ferry, but none of them participated in the auction today, he said.
As reported, earlier the ferry was assessed at LVL 2.53 million.

The "Baltic Kristina" was built in Finland in 1973. The ship is 116.51 meters long and 22 meters wide.
The money that the auction has brought in will be used to pay overdue salaries to the "Baltic Kristina" crew, covering the auction's expenses, taxes and duties. The remaining amount will be used to repay part of "Rigas juras linija's" (RJL) debt to "Parex Banka".

As reported, the Riga Regional Court ruled RJL insolvent on November 7.
The "Baltic Kristina" has been anchored in Riga Passenger Port since October 15. The Freeport of Riga Authority completed takeover of the "Baltic Kristina" last week. A maintenance crew of 19 is employed on the ferry.

The Riga City Council holds 35.48 percent interest in RJL, the company "Astramar" - 27.51 percent, Freeport of Riga Authority - 19.72 percent, "Ilmaco Limited" - 9.77 percent, Juris Sabasovs - 4.39 percent, Vjaceslavs Sprisevskis - 3.13 percent.

Vanha Bore I ei siis ainakaan vielä suunnannut kohti Kiinanmerta. Kun aluksen osti taho, jonka edustajalla ei ole ainakaan vielä sopimusta Tallinkin kanssa RJL:a seuraavan liikennekokeilun laiturijärjestelyistä, tulee mieleen, että latvialaisilla sittenkin kenties olisi vielä Ruotsinliikenteeseensä jotain omia suunnitelmia...
Toisaalta BK voisi sopia lyhyemmillekin reiteille, esim.Riianlahden ja Saarenmaan välille. Eikä kauhean kaukaa haetulta kuulostaisi sekään ajatus, että alus haluttaisiin rahdata jollekin varustamolle, jonka ensisijainen tarkoitus olisi kilpailla Tallinkin kanssa samalla reittialueella edullisemmin hinnoin...

BK:sta ei maksettu mitään hirvittävää summaa, joten yksi, oikeastaan kaikista todennäköisin, mahdollisuus sen tulevaisuutta visioidaksemme lienee joutuminen pian uudestaan myyntiin. Vaan kukapa sen nyt ainakaan parempaan hintaan enää vaivautuisi ostamaan..? ::)

Mielestäni tämä on uuden topicin paikka, Rigas Juras Lineasia koskevan ( http://www.fcbsweb.com/forum/index.php?topic=1771.180 ) voinee sulkea..?

Joni Huopana:
Hienoahan se olisi, jos se jäisi näille vesille. Viron saarten satamien kohdallahan vain taisi olla koko-ongelmia... ::)

Museolaivaksi Baltic Kristina taitaa olla hieman liian nuori...?

Korean rahtaus on taas noussut esiin Baltic Kristinan tulevaisuuden näkymien kohdalla...

Freeport of Riga wants to charter ferry out to South Korea

SSG-TALLINN. According to the news agency BNS, Freeport of Riga wants to
charter out the "Baltic Kristina" before the court has confirmed the result
of the auction. The port's management wants to avoid the costs involved in
keeping the ship laid up and accordingly bareboat charter it to a South
Korean ferry shipping company.

Freeport of Riga bought the "Baltic Kristina" at an auction last December
after the shipping company Rigas Juras Linija had gone bankrupt. The court
has been unable to confirm the result of the auction as one of the
creditors, the bunker company Rinkis OV, has appealed. Norwegian and Italian
ferry shipping companies are also said to be interested in the "Baltic
Kristina" and have been in contact with the port management. (06.03.06)

Ja tässä taas hieman lisätarkennusta tuohon mahdolliseen Korean rahtaukseen...

Baltic Kristina to become casino on waves
Karlis Leiskalns, director of PR at Riga Freeport, says that the Baltic Kristina ferry will likely be rented out to Four Seasons, a South Korean company. Four Seasons is already discussing the terms of the contract with Riga Freeport. The ferry will be rented out for five years for EUR 3,000 a day. The Korean company plans to convert it into a floating casino and start cruising from South Korea to China, as gambling is illegal in South Korea.

EUR 1 million must be spent to shift Baltic Kristina

The Freeport of Riga has not managed to rent out its ferry Baltic
Kristina. This is because the possible renter demands the reconstruction
of the ship first, which would cost about EUR 1 million. Karlis
Leiskalns, director of the Freeport of Riga Authority's PR department,
says that the ship was not used for a long period and this has
considerably lowered its value. The potential renter is now not the
South Korean company Four Seasons, as this company stopped the talks
when it became clear it would not get the ship by March. Leiskalns
admits that the prospects are bad, but says that the port is not yet
considering selling the ship for scrap metal.
