Lite Shipping Corp. continues to expand its fleet with the recent addition of M/V Lite Ferry Nine scheduled to serve the Jagna to Cagayan de Oro route and vice versa. The blessing and launching was held onboard the vessel at the Port of Jagna, Bohol last April 24 and attended by Bohol Gov. Arthur Yap and executives of Lite Ferries.
Built in China, Lite Ferry Nine was originally set to be launched last year but delivery was delayed for more than a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This 70-meter long vessel has a Gross Register Tonnage (GRT) of 2,107 tons that can accommodate 400 passengers and 17 10-wheeler trucks and has a service speed of 12 knots.
The new ship plies the Jagna, Bohol to Cagayan de Oro route, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 10 p.m and from Cagayan de Oro to Jagna, Bohol every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 p.m.
