The newest vessel in the national fleet of ferries, the APT James.

Nidco is defending the integrity of the new inter-island ferry against claims by the opposition leader, saying she is creating a mountain out of a molehill. 

Last night the opposition leader questioned why half a billion dollars was spent on a brand new vessel which recent inspection shows six deficiencies. 

However, the Nidco chairman says this is not the case.
