Steam Packet Fastcraft suffer engine problems
21st July, 2010
The Steam Packet have issued a statement regarding the technical issues they're currently experiencing with two of their fastcraft vessels.
Both the Manannan and the Snaefell vessels have been hit by damaged crankshafts, a normally uncommon occurrence on the boats.
The Snaefell is the latest vessel to be affected, with the reduced speed Manannan now covering its routes while engineers determine the problem.
Meanwhile the freight/passenger vessel Ben My Chree's service on the Douglas - Heysham route continues unaffected.
