Recommended Posts

Damage being assessed this morning

This morning's sailings of the Manannan have been cancelled following an incident last night in Douglas harbour.

A statement from the Steam Packet says the vessel "made contact" with the quay whilst attempting to berth last night.

There were no injuries reported and all the passengers and vehicles disembarked.

Damage is currently being assessed by Steam Packet engineers and an update on the situation is due this morning.

This afternoon's Liverpool sailings are currently listed as subject to disruption with more information available at midday.

Oops..bet that`s going to cause some problems especially at this time of the year. With only 2 vessels there`s no immediate plan B..Just hope repairs can be completed quickly. I have little doubt that the available airline seats will suddenly rocket in price, which is what normally happens.
