Marine Atlantic Investigating Incident at Argentia Terminal

November 27, 2017

St. John's, NL - On Saturday morning, November 25, a non-Marine Atlantic vessel collided with the Corporation's docking infrastructure in Argentia. While details are still being investigated, the MV Baby Leeyn, a privately owned and operated vessel, veered off course while departing the port of Argentia striking Marine Atlantic's main dock.
As the Argentia Marine Atlantic terminal is closed for the season, there were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.
A full damage assessment of the docking infrastructure will be taking place in the near future. Marine Atlantic is working with the appropriate authorities and insurance companies to determine how this incident occurred and the responsibility for damages.
