The first (and only) ship to be operated by New Zealand Coaster Services, out of which grew South Pacific Shipping.
She arrived on the coast in 1991 and ran initially between Onehunga, Lyttelton and Nelson with Wellington and Port Chalmers being added at later dates (although at different times). Hounded off the coastal run in 1993 by what was described by Managing Director Capt Ross Fast as unfair competition by New Zealand Rail. Renamed Rangikura, she was placed on the trans Tasman trade of South Pacific Shipping.
