Jonathan Swift II sounds good. Whatever the name, I am looking forward to a trip across the Irish sea on her  ;)

As someone has already posted, reflagged to Cyprus.  Matrix ship management also posted to Facebook that she passed a number of surveys as well.

It appears that the Westpac Express was detained by authorities in Malta in December following a EU Port State Control inspection which found a number of deficienies including Safety Management Certificates and issues with Rescue Boats. She was held in Valetta from the 20th until the 23rd December.
