Stena Line have announced that they are bringing in two of the biggest and most attractive ships ever to work the Scotland Northern Ireland route.
Sister ships Superfast VII and Superfast VIII will replace the HSS Stena Voyager, Stena Caledonia and Stena Navigator, which currently operate between the two countries.
The two new ships are to be used on the forthcoming service between Cairnryan and Belfast ferry port which is set to replace their current Stranraer Belfast ferry service.
The Superfast vessels, the biggest ships ever to operate on the Scotland - Northern Ireland ferry route, will cater for both passenger and freight ferry traffic. Each ship can carry up to 1,200 passengers, around 660 cars or 110 freight vehicles and will be able to complete the journey between Cairnryan and Belfast in just 2 hours, 15 minutes. The ships will be leased from Tallink - the Baltic Sea shipping group.
The deployment of the new ships this Autumn will coincide with the opening of Stena's new purpose built £80m port facility at Loch Ryan Port, Cairnryan, which will replace their current base at Stranraer ferry port.
Before the new ships are deployed on the route, both will be given extensive refits to ensure that they deliver a great experience with new attractive onboard concepts for restaurants and public areas.
