Manannan suffers engine failure

Sat, 12 Jul 2014

Passengers travelling on Manannan face longer journey times due to a problem with the boat's engine.

It's operating on reduced power after suffering a mechanical issue.

Journey times are now expected to be around 20 minutes longer depending on the tidal conditions.

Early indications suggest it is a failed crankshaft - a similar problem to the one which occurred four years ago.

The Steam Packet Company says it plans to wait until after the Festival of Motorcycling to carry out the repair.
