NIFerrySite have received information that Dieppe Seaways (future Stena Dublin – Holyhead vessel “Stena Superfast X” and a sister to our own Stena Superfast VIII/VII) is not being converted in Gdansk like her Stena operated sisters, but at the Nauta yard in Gdynia. Dieppe Seaways (former Superfast X) currently operates for DFDS, but is owned by Stena. Her charter expires at the end of this month freeing her up to enter service with Stena themselves.
Seatruck have confirmed that former Warrenpoint – Heysham vessel Clipper Pennant is going out on charter as well as their future fleet deployments.
The new vessel still has no date for entering service. Meanwhile operator’s ‘annus horribilis’ continues with an unusual amount of cancellations and delays.
Since publishing our update on the former STENA GALLOWAY (presently LE RIF, originally GALLOWAY PRINCESS) and STENA ANTRIM (Presently IBN BATOUTA, originally ST. CHRISTOPHER), further information has come to light.
Seatruck Ferries, the Irish Sea freight specialist, have increased capacity and sailing frequency on their Dublin to Liverpool route.
