On Saturday 13th May 2023 at 15:00 local time (07:00 BST), Manxman began the long voyage home from Ulsan, South Korea to Douglas, Isle of Man.
The trip halfway around the world will see the vessel spend approximately 23 days at sea, steam over 10,000 nautical miles and visit six or more ports before reaching Manx waters. You can track Manxman’s progress along the way here.

Due to the unpredictability of satellite internet connectivity, Manxman will occasionally lose its connection and and the live webcam feed will drop out. Please check back later.
We’ll also be providing regular updates from the officers in charge of Manxman’s delivery voyage to the Isle of Man, in our Captain’s Log. This blog will document the passage and provide some insight on each of the locations the vessel visits along the way.
Manxman’s Approximate Route
Manxman’s first port of call after leaving Ulsan is likely to be Singapore, requiring about six days to make the passage. The outline itinerary calls for further port visits at Colombo, Sri Lanka and Muscat, the capital of Oman. A further stop may be made at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as the vessel makes its way up the Red Sea towards the Suez Canal. After transiting the Canal, Manxman will cross the Mediterranean to Gibraltar, its last stop before reaching the South Coast of England towards the end of June.
Manxman’s expected to spend up to a week in port for final fittings, including the children’s play area, before making its way around Land’s End and heading into the Irish Sea to finally reach her home port of Douglas.
