Do you live on the Isle of Man?
Plans for the new Isle of Man Steam Packet Company vessel, Manxman, due to replace the Ben-my-Chree when it comes into service in 2023, are progressing well.
Just before the pandemic hit and the Manx borders were closed earlier this year, a retired racing greyhound found a new home in the Island with help from the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.
The new Isle of Man Steam Packet Company vessel will be named ‘Manxman’, it has been revealed.
Following the cancellation of TT 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company has confirmed it will be contacting those with bookings for the TT period to offer a priority transfer to the equivalent sailings for TT 2022 (e.g. Friday 4th June, 2021 = Friday 3rd June, 2022).
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is providing an opportunity for members of the public to voice their preferences for the name of its new vessel.
