1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: SNCM to sell NGV Liamone on: December 13, 2009, 06:11:54 pm
Are you sure that all passenger ships will be forbidden in Nice? I live there and I've read that ship won't be allowed to enter during the night (after midnight I think).
Banning ferries from the port of Nice would be a nonsense, even if a local committee wishes it.

Hum,

This boat is very similar to the Liamone, it's just a little smaller. I wonder what's the point of selling the Liamone to lease a very similar ship.

Well, somebody related to the company told me that is could be a "catamaran", but I'm not sure about whatit means.

Yes a "NGV4" is scheduled for next summer.
I guess the company will lease this ferry.

I wonder if a RoRo is a good idea for Nice: this kind of ships are slow and accept few passengers (especially compared to Corsica Ferries' "Mega Expresses").
Furthermore, the four RoRos are already scheduled on the Marseilles - Corsica routes. It might be a good idea SNCM to lease (or even buy) a ship that would be suitable for the Nice - Corsica crossing if the company wants to keep on operating on this route.

Hi,

According to French Polynesian press, the French company SNCM, which mainly operates between continental France and Corsica, is about to sell its last HSV, the "NGV Liamone".
She will be sent to French Poynesia were she will operate a route between Tahiti and the Leeward Islands. She will be renamed "King Tomaota".

I don't know if SNCM will buy or rent another ship to replace her.

I didn't know she was that much bigger then SNCMs other vessels


Well, so far the SNCM's bigger ship was Danielle Casanova which is 176 meters long.
Jean Nicoli is 203 meters long...
In fact, Jean Nicoli could not enter most of the Corsican ports (it cannot enter Bastia, Calvi, Île-Rousse, Propriano and Porto-Vecchio).

Anyone know who the Italien buyer was?

Well the newspaper did not named it.
By the way, according to the same article, when it goes to Marseilles, Jean Nicoli is supposed to land at the cruise terminal. It seems the SNCM's terminal is not long enough for it.

Jean Nicoli is scheduled for 3 trips to Algeria. Then nothing plannes as fas as I know.
It is sure that Veolia transport is trying to sell this ship, but according to "Nice-Matin" paper, the Italian company that was supposed to buy it wasn't able to prove it had enough funds to buy it.

She is on the Marseille Port Authority schedule for tomorrow, bound for Algiers.


Jean Nicoli will operate several trips between Marseilles and Algeria (Algiers, Annaba and Skikda) after the ferry Île-de-Beauté was damaged.
