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.

Do we know that once she has received her life extension refit, will Stena Europe definitely be returning to Fishguard/Rosslare, or could she move elsewhere (perhaps a Baltic route) and SFX be retained for the Southern corridor?

They are increasing deck height on more of her main vehicle deck which is only really a requirement for the Irish Sea routes so I would safely say she will be retained at Rosslare for the foreseeable future.

I think I heard that Superfast X is either sold or in the process of being sold.
