Following the conclusion of her 2017 season across Lough Foyle, FRAZER MARINER underwent some maintenance at Lisahally Docks (Foyle Port) which saw both of her vehicle ramps removed. In early January 2018 she visited the shipyard of Ardmaleish Boatbuilding Company at Port Bannatyne, near Rothesay, Isle of Bute, Scotland.  She was also noted in Bangor (County Down) on the 27th and 28th of January, and Portavogie the on Friday the 26th.  At the time of writing she is at anchor in Carlingford Lough, having left Bangor on the morning of Monday the 29th.  AISLING GABRIELLE is the former Lough Foyle ferry FOYLE VENTURE.
