38 Class Delivery Date:

Advice from the factory is that the 38s will be available for shipment on the 20th of September. Allowing for sailing time and clearance through Port Botany the 38s should be in hand around the 20th of October.
The sailing date of the vessel carrying the 38s should be available within the next two weeks and this will allow a more precise date for their arrival at Port Botany to be calculated.

38 Class Update

There is no official news yet on delivery of the 38s from the factory although they have advised that assembly is underway. We are pressing the factory to have the models at Port Botany by mid-September in time for the Liverpool exhibition but they are not guaranteeing anything at the moment.
40 Class Paint Samples Arrive

Painted samples of the three liveries (Green, Royal Blue and Tuscan) of the 40 class have arrived and are currently going through our checking process.

It normally takes at least12 weeks from approval of the paint samples to delivery and given current delays at the factory a December/January 2009/2010 delivery is likely.
