Solomon Express up for sale

LOCAL fast craft Solomon Express is up for sale.

The passenger vessel has been providing shipping services mainly between Honiara and Malaita, as well as Honiara and Western Province.

Company director Siew Hong Pau confirmed the vessel is now up for sale.
He said they are doing this because company directors wanted to shift from shipping to other business activities.

Mr Pau said they’ve received enquiries after the sale of the vessel was advertised in the Solomon Star.
“Most of the enquiries came from Australia, Fiji and Vanuatu,” Mr Pau said.

He declined to disclose the selling price. “This will remain confidential,” he said.
A similar fast craft, Pelican Express, is operated by Elite Shipping.
