STENA FORERUNNER is the temporary replacement for STENA PRECISION as the dedicated Belfast to Birkenhead freight vessel.  She is one of three Stena 4-Runner MkII freight vessels built for Stena RoRo in China.  In these pictures by regular contributor Scott Mackey we get a rare glimpse inside a vessel which normally only gets seen by freight drivers and her own crew.  To our knowledge this is the first time such detailed photographs of the accommodation of any of this specific class of vessel have been posted to a ferry website.
