The Isle of Man Steam Packet ferry company is due to launch its spring fastcraft sailing schedule.

The £18m Manannan vessel will start the company's fastcraft service with a 0730 GMT sailing to Liverpool's Pier Head on Friday.

From late April, the Snaefell fastcraft will also be used on the Liverpool route as well as covering journeys to Belfast and Dublin.

After a three-week refit the Ben-my-Chree will operate the Heysham service.

The company's latest fastcraft, Manannan can seat 800 passengers and take 200 cars, making a single journey in two and a half hours.
