Fastcraft requires engine repairs

Thu, 01 Jul 2010


One of the Steam Packet Company's vessels requires essential repairs to one of the engines.

The Manannan, which mainly operates the Liverpool to Douglas route, encountered a mechanical problem during her last crossing.

Engineers will be carrying out repairs over the next three weeks.

During this time, sailings are expected to take 20 to 30 minutes longer than usual.

The Steam Packet says engineers noticed the problem soon enough to prevent any serious damage.
