Seatruck Confirms Newbuilding Delivery Dates

Friday, April 28, 2006
Seatruck Ferries has celebrated its tenth anniversary by confirming that the third and fourth vessels in a four-ship series building in Spain for the Clipper Group-owned Irish Sea freight ferry operator will be delivered in 2008. Last year, Seatruck ordered two 142 metre-long, 120-unit, 22-knot vessels from Astilleros de Huelva in Spain. These vessels – the Clipper Point and the Clipper Pace – will be delivered in 2007, replacing the Riverdance and Moondance, doubling capacity and significantly increasing speed and efficiency on the company’s Warrenpoint to Heysham route. The new vessels will be the largest and fastest freight-only ships ever to be used on the Irish Sea, offering a new level of service and reliability. New ramp and terminal facilities at both Heysham and Warrenpoint will meanwhile help ensure speedy and efficient handling. Confirming that the third and fourth vessels in the series will be delivered in 2008, Seatruck general manager Alistair Eagles says the company is “currently investigating a number of different deployment opportunities for these vessels in European markets.”
