Ready for the Irish Sea

[ February 25, 2015   //   ]

Stena’s new Superfast X ferry for its Holyhead to Dublin route has left the Polish shipyard in Gdynia where she was being prepared for her launch on the service. With ten decks, the Stena Superfast offers almost two kilometres of lane space for freight traffic and other vehicles and can also take 4.65m high trailers. She is a sister ship to the Stena Superfast VII and VIII introduced on the Cairnryan to Belfast route in 2011.

The Stena Superfast X will make two return sailings daily between Holyhead and Dublin, completing the crossing in 3 hours and 15 minutes. Operating alongside the Stena Adventurer, there will be up to 28 return sailings per week all year round on the route.
