Westminster Group Plc:

Sierra Princess inaugural voyage



Westminster Group Plc ('Westminster', the 'Group' or the 'Company'), the AIM listed supplier of managed services and technology based security solutions to governments and government agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGO's) and blue chip commercial organisations worldwide, is pleased to announce Sovereign Ferries' recently arrived fast ferry, the Sierra Princess, has successfully completed her inaugural voyage


The Sierra Princess undertook her inaugural voyage at an event held on 9 September 2016 at the Company's Kissy Terminal in Sierra Leone attended by the Sierra Leone Minister of Transport & Aviation, various other senior government figures, the Chairman, Director General and other dignitaries from the Sierra Leone Ports Authority, the Maritime Police and other institutions. The event was a great success with press and local TV crews in attendance.


The Sierra Princess is a fast ferry capable of transporting up to 70 passengers in safety and air conditioned comfort at over 20 knots from twin 400hp inboard engines. She is equipped with the latest navigational and safety equipment.


The Sierra Princess will be joining Sovereign's flag ship vessel, the Sierra Queen, in providing a fast, safe and efficient ferry service between the Tagrin, Kissy and Government Wharf terminals either side of the Sierra Leone River Estuary. The service will not only provide a much needed professional airport transfer service between the airport and the Capital Freetown, with crossing times of just 20 minutes but will also provide an efficient ferry service around the capital and further afield.


Services are expected to commence in Q4 2016 and full details of commencement dates will be provided in due course on the Sovereign Ferries website where tickets for the service will be available for purchase.
