Former NI Ferries of Sealink British Ferries/Sealink (British Rail)
Sealink/Sealink British Ferries
Sealink was the ferry division of then nationalised British Rail. As part of the preparations for privatisation a new livery designed by H&P associates to differentiate the operation from British Rais corporate l’s introduced on the newly acquired (on charter from Stena) St. Nicholas in March 1984. On 27 July 1984 the British government sold the core passenger and vehicle ferry business of Sealink to Sea Containers for £66m. The company was renamed Sealink British Ferries and used a modified version of the new livery. In the spring of 1990 the majority of the business was sold to Stena Line following a hostile takeover bid (the sale excluded the English Channel hovercraft and Isle of Wight services though, which Sea Containers retained). Stena would rebrand the services as first Sealink Stena Line, then Stena Sealink Line, before finally rebranding the operation as Stena Line in 1996.
