Manxman's delivery date delayed

Tue, 31 Jan 2023

Testing carried out by Manxman’s builders during routine sea trials revealed a significant problem in the vessel’s systems.

Additional work will be required to ensure Manxman is up to the rigorous specification set out by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.

The works will be carried out by the contractors and shipyard that the Steam Packet Company has engaged to build the vessel. This will be followed by further sea trials.

These additional works will have an impact on the delivery timeline of the vessel to the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company in South Korea and subsequently its arrival in Manx waters.

There will be no impact on existing or future bookings, all sailings will be carried out by the existing vessels in the Company’s fleet.
