The 32 meter long tug Toia collided with the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth at Wellington, New Zealand. The tug loaded with 50 passengers was passing along the port side of the Queen Elizabeth when the Toia’s funnel struck the cruise ship’s funnel. The funnel was damaged, but the Toia was able to proceed under its own power. No reports of injuries or pollution released. Local authorities have launched an investigation and have notified Maritime NZ of the incident.
