Manxman to undergo planned maintenance

No disruption to passenger services

The Manxman will be out of commission for four days in the coming months. 

The Steam Packet Company says the vessel will undergo planned servicing of its Marine Evacuation System (MES). 

The dates are 26 March, 15 April, 25 April and 7 May.

There will be no disruption to passenger services, as the Manannan or Ben-my-Chree will take over the Manxman sailings for these dates.

This is a routine annual requirement for all vessels with the Ben-my-Chree expected to undertake its planned annual maintenance and inspection in March and April.

The Manannan’s overhaul and cabin refit has been taking place over the winter period ahead of its return to service at the end of this month.
