The following updates have been posted to the site.

  • Video of the Stena Superfast TTS automated mooring system in action added to the Stena Superfast VII and VIII page, courtesy of Neal Finlay.
  • Following a recent trip onboard Stena Superfast VII, I have added further pictures of both Stena Superfast VII and European Highlander to their respective pages.  An internal gallery of Stena Superfast VII/VIII is also under construction (not yet accessible).
  • Photos of Stena Nordica in Belfast Lough last week added to her page.  A deck plan of her is under construction and I also hope to travel on her in order to get interior pictures, before she departs for a new career with DFDS operating from Dover-Calais for 18 months.
