STENA FORECASTER is a Stena Line Ro-Ro freight ferry which normally operates the freight-only shoulder sailings on the Belfast – Liverpool (Birkenhead) route. She replaced her sister-ship STENA FORERUNNER on the route during February 2019. STENA FORECASTER is the second of three identical sister-ships built for Stena RoRo by the Dalian shipyard in China. Prior to her introduction at Belfast, she had most recently been used to ship Airbus aircraft components across the Atlantic from Europe to America, including entire aircraft fuselages. Prior to that, she had been chartered out to Finnish operator Transfennica then Tunisian operator COTUNAV. As a dedicated freight vessel STENA FORECASTER only has capacity for 12 passengers, all of whom are frieght drivers.
