Failed part delayed Manannan arrival

The Steam Packet says a failed hydraulic fitting was one of the reasons for a delay in Sunday night's Manannan sailing from Liverpool.

Assistance was needed and it took some time for the vessel to berth safely in Douglas harbour.

It was among a number of factors that delayed the boat.

In a statement issued by the Steam Packet, it says the failed part meant one of the engines could not be used for manoeuvering purposes - despite the engine itself being fully functional.

This, combined with strong, gusting winds and a French warship moored on the adjacent berth - meant the Captain required help from a tug.

The firm has apologised to passengers for the time the problem added to the journey.

It's assured customers the failed part was replaced overnight ahead of Monday morning's sailing.
