BASS Island Line says it has received positive feedback from customers since the introduction of its John Duigan vessel to the King Island route three months ago.


According to a statement from BIL, schedule adjustments had worked well and the vessel was meeting the freight needs of the people and businesses of King Island.

“In providing a vessel that has an increased capacity Bass Island Line planned for the future and growth in exports from the island,” a BIL spokesperson said in a statement.

“On average John Duigan sails at around 70% of total capacity. This provides an opportunity for King Island farmers and businesses to increase export volumes.”

John Duigan replaced the vessel Investigator II, a vessel deemed too small for the Island’s freight needs by many locals, with claims of beer shortages among other issues.
