Snaefell encounters engine problems

Tue, 20 Jul 2010

One of the engines in the Snaefell has suffered a crankshaft failure.

The Steam Packet Company has announced that the smaller fastcraft developed a technical issue on Sunday.

The Manannan, which currently has the same problem, will cover the Snaefell's sailings to Liverpool whilst repairs are carried out.

The Snaefell will continue to operate the Belfast and Dublin routes at a reduced speed.
