Europe arrived at Tuzla, just outside Istanbul this evening and appears to be in a holding pattern at 2knts waiting to enter drydock/ or getting an anchorage point.

Over the next 12 weeks they have a lot of work to do including complete engineering rebuilds on the four main engines by Wartsila so better get into drydock ASAP.

Destination Gotland are in no rush to put the ferry into service, hard to believe these are the modern incarnation of the one time Irish Sea favorite Felicity/Stena Felicity which was originally on this route.

Isnt it quiet amazing to see the Stena Europe where she is now.

Sure is, and would imagine an interesting trip for the crew makes a big difference from their regular route, just passing Athens this evening.

The Merrion Lounge / Superfast IX charter renewed
« on: March 19, 2019, 10:05:43 PM »
Marine Atlantic have renewed their charter of Superfast IX for another year.

https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2019/03/19/1757022/0/en/AS-Tallink-Grupp-has-extended-vessel-charter-agreement.html?fbclid=IwAR15KII0-EuziTfRszTpoGv2IC64d1GGYpadJGj566d1XGUfIEQf0LaCh6s

Given the links between Marine Atlantic and Stena, they would be prime candidates to purchase the Superfast X when it becomes available next year, once the Stena Estrid enters service and Stena Adventurer visits drydock Stena will no longer have a route suitable for the X.

Europe just off the coast of Tunisia and Sicily, at a steady 17 knts, giving the engines a good work out.

Stena Europe has arrived in Gibraltar this morning, time for some fuel. Next up Istanbul.

Latest info is that Europe is going to the same shipyard that DFDS have used for lengthening the UND RoRo vessels,

This is some of the work they can do
