It was en-route from Picton to Wellington with about 800 passengers and 80 crew on board when it suffered a main engine failure and loss of propulsion. It dropped anchor and onboard engineers restored power about 2 hours later. The vessel, escorted by tugs, proceeded to port. TAIC is appealing for videos or photographs from ferry passengers and residents of Wellington’s South Coast.
