YARMOUTH, N.S. _ An American federal court has ordered the seizure of the money-losing ferry that links Nova Scotia with Maine.

The order against Nova Star Cruises, issued Friday, comes after the Nova Scotia government announced it was switching operating companies from Nova Star Cruises to Bay Ferries.

The document alleges Nova Star Cruises failed to pay US$195,897.52 in invoices to the harbour pilot boat company, Portland Pilots.

Nova Star Cruises received $41.5 million in provincial subsidies in its first two years of operation.

The ferry fell well below it’s projected goal of 80,000 passengers this year.
