The News Board / Re: W.B.YEATS DELIVERY IS DELAYED
« Last post by marsav68 on Today at 02:11:31 PM »
For anyone who hasn't being following it, the folks at the german ship enthusiast forum believe that WB Yeats is to leave Flensburg on Sunday morning, first to go to a dry dock for the hull to be dolled up a bit (pretty much 1:1 translation of the text in German!) and then to Liverpool for final fitting out work. 

Wheres its going.... we need to pay attention to the AIS info at the weekend to find that out !

The source seems to be reliable as they predicted the ship adjacent to WB Yeats would be moving from its position this morning, and indeed that's exactly what happened.

Being moved to the other side of the outfitting pier I'd say. I wouldn't be surprised if she'll be gone by Saturday

AIS showing tugs Holtenau and Stein around the WB Yeats. Possibly will be those two tugs that will assist her on Sunday

I watched the RO/RO being moved this morning across and down the harbour . A heavy lift crane ( Gulliver ) arrived this morning  , and the first superstructure section for the Barfleur is arriving on Friday . Barfleur's hull is expected to be launched on Friday . I expect they will start lifting the superstructure into place right away . Lets hope they got their measurements correct this time .

The News Board / Re: Stena Line fleet movements

My understanding is that the ARK FORWARDER which is now the MSC BRIDGE was sold by Stena to MSC in May. She was initially chartered by them back in March and operates to Rades in Tunisia from Italy carrying containers which are loaded onto her vehicle decks. MSC apparently wanted the vessel because of delays loading containers conventionally in Tunisa. The sale leaves the Stena Forerunner as the only remaining 4-Runner owned by Stena but for how much longer?

Matt D.
Nothing about her sale on any of the Stena trading updates that I can see which would be expected if she had sold been like her sisters (as laid-down).

Yes it's odd isn't it that nothing appears to have been announced. Equasis shows MSC as the registered owner since 23 May 2018
