Following on from my post on the IF movements thread, I thought it would be worth a right royal speculation on where Malo Seaways may next be working, 'cos we're good at stuff like that!
News is she is likely to be leaving her DFDS Charter early, so what could next be in store for her?
My own initial thought as reported could possibly be to replace Epsilon at Irish Ferries, but she would probably be to thirsty for the French runs.
Many have claimed for some time that she would make a suitable replacement for Stena Europe on the Southern corridor, but it sounds like money is to be spent on Europe during her down-time, meaning she isn't going anywhere.
A return to the Baltic probably isn't on the cards, given the emissions restrictions coming in over there.
However, another possibility, given her powerful engines and the lower cost of fuel could be to re-uprate her props and offer an express service somewhere - could even be a replacement for the Dublin Swift or Manannan, not to the same speed but probably a more economical alternative.
Other suggestions please.
