Ant 1, Ant 2, and Anna Marine (originally Buffalo, Union Melbourne (later Puma), and Bison) spent most of their careers together operating to Fleetwood from Larne first for Pandoro/P&O and then Stena Line between 1980 and 2011. They were also beached together during February 2014 after 39 years service.
