Manannan's winter mooring in IoM

Steam Packet vessel Manannan will be berthed in Douglas Harbour until the end of the year.

It'll be moored there when its 2016 season concludes on November 6 - and services won't resume until March 31.

She'll sail to Merseyside early next year for an 'annual overhaul'. Until then, she will be available as a back-up vessel.

Permanent repairs to the port side wave-piercing sponson will be carried out - it was damaged in March when it crashed into Victoria Pier.

The Ben-my-Chree will continue to operate services though the winter, and addiitional freight transportation will be handled by the Arrow.
