Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan explains that MV Galleons Passage was not custom built for Trinidad and Tobago and as such needs to be customized.

Speaking on TV 6 this morning, he revealed that the availability of the boat at its price made it a difficult deal to turn down despite the necessary customizations that were still needed.

Minister Sinanan added that the boat was a steal of a deal and suggested that tax payers will benefit more in the long run from the purchase of this vessel.
