22/12-2009 09:29:06: (HRG) Hurtigruten's fast ferries operations cease at year-end 2009

Hurtigruten ASA currently owns five fast ferries 
after the divestment of the ferries in Troms and 
Nordland County and the fast ferries in Nordland on 5 
January 2009. The remaining fast ferries operations 
cease at year-end 2009 when Veolia Transport Nord 
takes over the fast ferry routes Tromsø-Finnsnes-
Harstad.

Hurtigruten's remaining fast ferries will be sold or 
rented out. MV "Fjordprinsessen" and MV "Vågsfjord" 
will be sold to Torghatten Nord AS for respectively 
NOK 9.5 million and NOK 7.5 million. Transfer date 
will be on 4 January 2010 and the transaction will 
have no considerable accounting gains or losses. 
Hurtigruten has signed a letter of intent with a 
Greek company regarding the divestment of 
MS "Fjorddronningen II".

MS "Fjordkongen" and MS "Fjorddronningen" have been 
rented out to Veolia Transport Nord AS on a bareboat 
charter to be used on the route Tromsø-Finnsnes-
Harstad. MS "Fjordkongen" will be rented out until 20 
February 2010 and MS "Fjorddronningen" until 20 April 
2010. Hurtigruten will thereafter seek to divest the 
two fast ferries.
