Hordaland District Court has granted Havila Kystruten (parent company of Havila Voyages) arrest in Havila Capella (2021-built cruiseferry), and the right to forced use for a period of up to 2 years.

Bent Martini (Havila's CEO) said they were pleased with the decision from Hordaland District Court, which gave them "the opportunity to put Havila Capella back into operation along the Norwegian coast as soon as insurance of the ship is finally clarified.” 

“This is a very important decision for Havila Kystruten, for the coastal community and for all our employees who look forward to contributing to memorable experiences for our travelers.”

Havila Voyages follows up the ruling from Hordaland District Court by getting the vessel insured so that Havila Capella could be put back into normal operation.

Martini added they had "worked with various alternatives to get Havila Capella back into operation, also on a political level," and were very happy that they had found a solution that allowed them to operate the ship if they got the insurance in place until they took over the ownership of the ship.
