[ December 13, 2018   //   ]

Irish Continental Group has taken delivery of the cruise ferry WB Yeats at Flensburg, Germany. After commissioning, the vessel will go into service initially on the Dublin/Holyhead route in January 2019, partnering with the Ulysses. The WB Yeats will have space for 165 freight vehicles (2,800 lane metres) plus 1,800 passengers. However, from mid-March the WB Yeats will take up service on the Dublin/Cherbourg route, the only direct service to France from the Irish capital.
