Isle of Man Steam Packets new vessel "Manannan"


The new fast craft Manannan joined the IOMSP fleet today. After an extensive refit in Portsmouth she arrived in Douglas today (delayed by bad weather). Manannan will replace the Viking on the Liverpool/Isle of Man route from the end of May. The rumour mill has her coming to Liverpool this week to carry out berthing trials at the IOMSP berth at the pierhead.
