New passenger service started by Sea Eagle Cruises

India’s Sea Eagle Cruises plans to inaugurate coastal passenger ship sailings between Mumbai and Goa later this year using the former Japanese ferry Ogasawara Maru, which has now been renamed Angriya.

Built in 1997, the 6,700gt ship had been sent to Indian breakers in 2016 when she was replaced on the Ogasawara Islands run by a 11,035gt newbuilding.

However, she was saved from demolition and purchased by Sea Eagle, who have since had her reconditioned and fitted out to carry 400 passengers,

The last passenger service between Mumbai and Goa, using the post-war built ferries Konkan Shakti and Konkan Sevak, was terminated in 1991. JS
