Technical issue slows Manannan crossings

Fri, 28 Jul 2017

Sailings between the Isle of Man and Liverpool are taking longer than normal following a technical issue with one of the ferries.

The Steam Packet Company says the Manannan is currently running at a reduced speed due to a technical issue.

As a result, the vessel isn't due into Douglas until after 3pm, taking more than three hours to travel from Merseyside.

The operator confirmed engineers have identified the problem and are working to replace the component as soon as possible.

The longer crossing to Douglas means this afternoon's 3pm trip to Liverpool will be delayed by around 45 minutes.
