The Isle of Man Steam Packet Ro-Pax BEN-MY-CHREE returned to the Isle of Man earlier today following a week-long absence for her annual overhaul at Cammell Laird in Birkenhead. She is currently expected to return to service as planned on Thursday (02.05.19). During her absence, the ferry link between Great Britain and the Isle of Man has been maintained by the fast-craft MANANNAN and Ro-Ro freighter ARROW.
BEN-MY-CHREE has been in service from the Isle of Man since summer 1998. She was built by Van de Giessen-de Noord specifically for the Isle of Man operation and is the company’s sole conventional passenger-carrying vessel, with the majority of passengers during peak season carried by the company’s fast-craft (currently MANANNAN).
