Seatruck’s Clipper Ranger Starts Service in Canada

UPDATE 20.12.19: CTMA have confirmed that they have purchased CLIPPER RANGER and will rename her CTMA VOYAGEUR II

Canadian operator CTMA announced yesterday that chartered Seatruck Ro-Ro CLIPPER RANGER had been certified by the authorities and read ready to enter service, just four days after arriving in Canada at the end of her cross-Atlantic voyage from Birkenhead.  She is currently undertaking her first commercial voyage from Souris to Cap-aux-Meules, having crossed unladen from Cap-aux-Meules on Sunday.  

In addition to freight, CLIPPER RANGER is also carrying up to 30 cars per sailing (twice that of predecessor C.T.M.A. VOYAGEUR), though drivers and passengers need to travel independently of their cars onboard MADELEINE (ex ISLE OF INISHTURK / ISLE OF INISHMORE / LEINSTER) as CLIPPER RANGER only has accommodation for up to 12 freight drivers.  As previously reported, CLIPPER RANGER is on a one year charter from Seatruck Ferries with an option for CTMA to purchase her. She replaces the veteran Stena Seacarrier Ro-Ro C.T.M.A VOYAGEUR.
