Further to Brent's article on the 6/10 about the MSC chartered vessels, the MSC London has been withdrawn and is to be replaced by the White Sea (IMO 9125592).

Reef Shipping's new vessel for their feeder service from Fiji to Micronesia is Pacifica Shipping's coastal vessel "Spirit of Resolution" IMO 9139127. She is due to berth at Freyberg Wharf Auckland on 29 October to load for her delivery voyage to Suva. She will be renamed "Reef Nauru II".
The current "Reef Nauru" the old "Southern Express" IMO 8506464 will be renamed "Reef Fiji" to commence a new service from Tauranga and Auckland to Fiji and then Vila and Santo. The "Southern Tiare" which is at present on this run will be placed on a dedicated Auckland to Niue service.
So..... this raises the question. What are Pacifica Shipping going to use on their South Island West Coast service to Onehunga?

It amazes me that there has been no Press Release or comment about "Spirit of Resolution" transferring to Reef Shipping and what this means for coastal shipping in New Zealand. Shocked

Spirit of Resolution is going into Onehunga port to discharge her coastal cargo. She will be there for four days before heading around to Auckland. Ports of Auckland now have her arriving from Onehunga as "Reef Nauru", so it appears crew change , renaming and hand over to new owners will happen at Onehunga.

My understanding is that Pacifica are looking at suitable vessels to replace Spirit of Resolution and maintain the west coast service. The ships crew are "on holiday" and not paid off indicating they will be required again.

Reef Shipping's move to a "stand alone" shipping company seems to have fizzled out a bit. Their schedule has gone from a six vessel operation, down to three.
The "Southern Tiare" is laid up in Auckland with engine trouble, ETD 21 November? This necessitated her cargo for Niue and Tonga being shipped on the newly acquired "Reef Nauru II".
There is no forward schedule for "Reef Nauru" or "Reef Express" although the latter will do one voyage from Auckland to Suva, Vila and Santo.
Their latest schedule has "Southern Reef" now doing Auckland-Papeete-Rarotonga-Aitutaki-Niue-Auckland.
The "Reef Samoa" will do Tauranga-Auckland-Lautoka-Suva-Apia-Pago Pago-Vavau-Nukualofa-Tauranga.
The new "Reef Nauru II" will do the feeder service from Suva to Micronesia, Nauru and the Solomon Islands.

From Pacifica Shipping

The new vessel does not appear to have her own cranes. How will this work in the Port of Onehunga?

The "Spirit of Independence" will not call at Onehunga. The ship LOA is to large and no cranes onboard for Onehunga. Port of Onehunga will be visited now only by cement ships and maybe occassionally by the "Anatoki".

Re:Reef Shipping.

"Reef Nauru" is heading to China for dry docking.
"Southern Tiare" is still in Auckland under going engine repairs.
