Irish Ferries orders ‘super ship’

[ May 31, 2016   //   ]

Irish Ferries’ parent company Irish Continental Group has signed an agreement with Germany’s Flensburger shipyard to build a cruise ferry for €144 million. The vessel will have space for up to 165 trucks, as well as 300 cars and 1,885 passengers and crew – with dedicated space for freight drivers – and is scheduled for delivery in May 2018.

The new ship is likely to go into service on routes served by the chartered ship MV Epsilon, currently year round services Dublin-Holyhead midweek, and Ireland-France at weekends.
