Stena’s Belfast – Heysham ro-ro Stena Scotia
STENA SCOTIA returned to the Irish Sea last week, initially to release her sister-ship STENA HIBERNIA for dry docking, before replacing STENA PERFORMER on the Belfast to Heysham run so she can return to owner Seatruck Ferries after her own dry docking. 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. STENA SCOTIA and her slightly younger sister STENA HIBERNIA were delivered in 1996 to Norfolk Line by Japan’s Miho Zosen of Shimizu, Japan. With thanks to Scott Mackey and the crew of STENA SCOTIA.
