Cruise ship auctioned tonight
The 'Astoria' is being auctioned in the night of Feb 26 for a heft and probably optimistic $12 million. The insolvency administrator of Portuscale Cruises will attempt to auction the vessel, currently held in Rotterdam against unpaid bills.
Oldest sailing cruise ship of the world to be auctioned
The 'Astoria', the world's oldest sailing cruise ship, was put up for sale after the bankruptcy of Portuscale Cruises. With a sale of the ship, the bankruptcy estate of the operator will be able to be closed. But according to analysts, it is doubtful whether a buyer can be found. This is because a minimum price of no less than 10 million Euro has been set for the ship- It is possible to buy much newer ships in the same size for the same price. The bidding deadline is Feb 19, 2021.
