Do you live on the Isle of Man?
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is pleased to confirm Manxman has officially joined its fleet, with transfer of ownership completed at 11:40 South Korean time (03:40 BST) today, 11th May, 2023.
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company (IOMSPC) are delighted to be sponsoring Vagabonds RUFC Team for the 2022/2023 season.
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company has today confirmed a number of changes to the published schedule to ensure it continues to provide a resilient and reliable service until the arrival of new vessel Manxman.
Testing carried out by Manxman’s builders during routine sea trials revealed a significant problem in the vessel’s systems. Additional work will be required to ensure Manxman is up to the rigorous specification set out by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.
Broadly speaking, the Steam Packet Company supports initiatives to tackle the energy challenges of the 21st Century, which includes the development of offshore wind farms as part of the response. However, it does have concerns about the cumulative effect the numerous Irish Sea wind farm projects could have on the viability of the lifeline routes serving our Island.
