Tests will continue Tuesday aboard the 32,000-ton SuperFast ferry to Bimini. The new casino boat and cruise ferry’s emergency power sources are still not operating correctly, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Genting, the Malaysian gambling giant, owns the ship and the Bimini casino it will visit. Coast Guard inspector Janet Espino-Young said it was not yet clear whether the ship would be ready to sail Wednesday. Genting originally planned to begin service June 28.

Once it clears inspection, the SuperFast plans to offer two trips daily to Resorts World Bimini. For now, it remains in terminal H at PortMiami, where it has been docked since mid-June.
