SEAROAD’s new charter vessel MV Liekut arrived ahead of schedule on 25 March at Station Pier, Melbourne, at 8.30am.

Executive chairman of SeaRoad, Chas Kelly, said the ship had a smooth sailing from Cape Town to Melbourne during the 15-night voyage.

“We’re very happy to finally have MV Liekut in Australian waters and we look forward to preparing the vessel for her arrival to Devonport,” said Mr Kelly.

MV Liekut will be docked at Station Pier for the next few days for deep cleaning, COVID checks, operational checks and a flag change. The vessel will then move onto Webb Dock in Melbourne to prepare for the ship’s first arrival to Devonport over the Easter long weekend, which will be a non-commercial sailing.


MV Liekut’s first commercial voyage will depart Devonport on 5 April (Easter Monday).

SeaRoad is a privately-owned, Australian integrated shipping and logistics business specialising in Bass Strait services. The company provides a customer-focused service through purpose-built ro-ro vessels servicing the route between Melbourne and Devonport.
