MANANNAN – UPDATE 10.00 HOURS – 26/03/16

26/3/2016

Marine Surveyors from the UK have confirmed that Steam Packet Company proposals for repair of the damage to Manannan are acceptable. This will necessitate a short period of dry docking in order to properly effect repairs.

Manannan will sail to Birkenhead during the early hours of Monday 28th March and work will be carried out in the Cammell Laird shipyard. The repairs are expected to be completed in time for Manannan to take up her scheduled 07:00 sailing to Belfast on Wednesday 30th March.
 
MV Arrow started sailings on Friday, which released passenger and vehicle capacity on Ben-my-Chree; employing additional crew has allowed her to operate on maximum passenger capacity throughout this period.
 
Chief Executive Mark Woodward said:

 

‘This has been a very trying period for all of our booked passengers and we would like to thank them for their patience and understanding. I would also like to thank our crew and staff who, at times, have had to work under difficult circumstances and in many cases have also had to sacrifice their own holiday plans and family commitments.
 
‘The repairs to Manannan will allow her to resume her planned schedule from Wednesday morning and the information below details the arrangements for passengers booked in the next few days.’
 
Sailings to and from Ireland:
 
Regrettably, with the loss of Manannan, and there being no suitable alternative vessels available, we are unable to operate a sailing to Ireland before Wednesday 30th March. This means we have had to cancel the Dublin sailings on Sunday 27th March. We currently have a sailing of Manannan to Belfast scheduled at 07:00 on Wednesday 30th March; should the repairs to Manannan take longer than planned, the contingency plan is to operate a sailing to Belfast with Ben-my-Chree. This would depart at 19:30 with the return departing Belfast at 01:00 Thursday 31st March.
