Steam Packet discussions ongoing

Minister says there's much to discuss

Talks between the Manx government and the Steam Packet are ongoing, the Island’s new infrastructure minister has confirmed.


It follows discussions earlier this year, after the company tabled an offer to extend the user agreement beyond 2026, with a promise of investment.


Last year, seven other ferry operators expressed an interest in running services to and from the Island.


Ray Harmer says there are many long-term aspects to discuss.
