Was beginning to think the new Mercy Ships vessel was never going to be launched.

Don't have a shippax sub, so no access to article.


Just to refresh our memories, based on the Stena Britannica/Hollandica design of the current Harwich based Ferries, though heavily modified.

Finally an update on the new Mercy Ships build

Looks like no stabilizers fitted in these images, surely a ship of this size will find them useful. Cannot be that expensive to fit.

She will spend most of her time in port and won’t have much in the way of people onboard her when moving between ports.  She also has a pretty low sailing speed as well remember.
