NZ ferries to have Manx flag

Two new ferries connecting New Zealand's two largest Island will have Manx flags.

The Isle of Man Ship Registry will be the flag state overseeing construction of two rail-enabled RoPax ferries serving the country's North and South Islands.

KiwiRail has commissioned the vessels as it modernises its fleet plying the Cook Strait.

The Island's ship registry will oversee the build process once the state-owned company chooses a shipyard to construct the vessels.
