Vessel arrived in Douglas this morning following repairs

The Ben-my-Chree will return to service on Tuesday following repairs to her propeller.

The vessel arrived back in Douglas just after 5am today after leaving dry dock in Falmouth yesterday following successful tests to her propeller and steering systems.

It had been expected she'd be out of service until the end of the week, but repairs were completed ahead of schedule as the Steam Packet Company already had spare propeller blades in stock.

The operator will be contacting all passengers affected.
