Crystal Cruises auctioning off casino machines and artworks as liquidation process continues

The administrators for Crystal Cruises have begun to auction off cruise ship equipment and various other items.

With the auction set to begin in May, you can expect to see casino machines, artworks, end tables and more up for sale.

There’s also more than 70 chairs, computer monitors, promotional gift items and plenty more being sold off.

Crystal’s assets are in the process of being liquidated after their parent company Genting Hong Kong went under. Tens and thousands of claims have been filed by those trying to get their money back including customers, agents, vendors and more.

It is not yet known when Crystal’s biggest asset, the ships themselves, will be on sale. This initial auction will begin in early May, you can monitor Moecker Auctions and Proxibid if you’re looking to snap anything up.

Interestingly, former Genting Hong Kong CEO Tan Sri KT Lim has begun making new moves, registering a company called Resorts World Cruises in Singapore. Mr KT Lim is the CEO of Genting Group, who already owns Resorts World Las Vegas.

According to a report published in The Straits Times, Resorts World Cruises is held by the shareholder, Two Trees Family Holdings, that lists three directors, including Mr KT Lim and his son.

Mr KT Lim had also previously expressed an interest in purchasing Global Dream, the world’s biggest cruise ship which is still  under-construction, furthering suggestions that he’s looking to stick around in the industry.
