Transatlantic lines (TAL) current situation


#408

I saw Tony( there former hiring manager) in the city the other day and he said they are bankrupt and closing up shop. He already had another job. Sounds like TAL is no more…


#409

I can only speak to M/V GEYSIR

The vessel reverted to the bank at auction on 29 Nov

It was subsequently bought by I believe transocean and according to sub/cust slated for the DR to be scrapped but the Shipyard says they are going to go Fix up and put it into service.

Subcust was released as was the agent on 19 December.

That is all the info I have


#410

Anyone have news on what finally happened to the two TAL ships?

What about the Icelander in Connecticut? Has he started another gyppo shipping company to carry military cargo, or is he completely out of business?

TRANSATLANTIC still listed for sale at Marcon.com

http://marcon.com/marcon2s.cfm?SectionGroupsID=20&PageID=8&Action=Detail&File=GS05129

can’t find the listing for the GEYSIR that used to be on their site though

Only less than a month ago I still saw that hunk of shit Transatlantic anchored in Long Beach. What an eyesore.


#413

saw on FB she was sold to someone.


#414

now it is turn for the TRANSATLANTIC

even though a little miserable POS vessel, I still hope she remains US flag


#415

Reefer “Shockets” is a pretty great Freudian slip.


#416

Whaaaat- you don’t want this lil creampuff? Kick the tires and light the fires.


#417

I have no idea what she will fetch but it might be something Matson would be interested in.


#418

She would be perfect to run between the islands.


#419

The Transatlantic is not all that different than Matson’s reflagged Kamokuiki that will be on their Hononlulu to Marshall Island service.


#420

Apparently, the TRANSATLANTIC is scheduled for auction tomorrow.

I wish c.captain the best of luck with his bid.


#421

Who bought it?


#422

most likely the bank that held the mortgage which I expect was much higher than the fair market value of the ship today
