Managing Director, Stephanie Dawson, said that the company has cited a disappointing past 12 months in tourism traffic as a direct result of the flattening economy in South Australia, as the reason for the suspension, however, a new purpose built vessel will be introduced to take over the Wallarroo to Lucky Bay ferry service in late 2015.
