New Strangford Ferry begins service

Date published: 01 February 2017

The new £6.2million Strangford Ferry will commence its first operation tomorrow afternoon transporting passengers and cars between Strangford and Portaferry.

Following successful sea trials the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) were satisfied with all safety aspects for the new ferry and have issued the Passenger Certificate to allow it to begin operating.

The new Strangford Ferry will replace the aging MV Strangford, which was built in 1969 and is now beginning to reach the end of its operational life.

The new ferry is equipped with the latest technology in terms of marine engineering and ease of maintenance.  It also provides a comfortable passenger lounge for the short journey between Strangford and Portaferry.
