Anyone heard any updates on how the new IF ship is progressing in the yard? Is it still on target to be in service next year?

I would imagine it's a bit early to say much either way?

I believe the ship just launched is yard no 770 and Irish Ferries yard no is 771 so it looks like the ferry is next . If they built three Ro Ro,s  before it they would never meet the May2018 delivery date .

Yard numbers aren't necessarily a guide to the order of building.

The ship launched today is actually yard number 772 and due for delivery May/June.  The other DFDS ship is number 773 and due for delivery in September. 

669 is due to be handed over shortly to EKOL and 770 also for EKOL is due for delivery March 2018.

Gardenia Seaways which was launched today is 772. As I understand 773 will be next followed by 771. The latter is scheduled for delivery in May 2018.

Just goes to show what an efficient operation they are running over there, and perhaps how unlike many other European yards they have been able to compete with the Far East.

You'd be surprised how quick these guys are.  Remember, its all modular construction, and different parts of the vessel will be constructed simultaneously in different areas of the yard (and perhaps even at other locations) then married together.  The days of simply building a vessel from the keel upwards are gone.

Turns out Gardenia Seaways superstructure was actually built at Gdansk and brought to the yard by barge.
