Seatruck fleet movements

Since the last fleet movements thread hasn’t been updated in nearly 4 years, I created a new one!

As noted in the Stena thread, STENA PRECISION and STENA PERFORMER will be returning to Seatruck at the end of August/start of September.  In line with the requirements in the charter contract, they will be dry docked and repainted into Seatruck colours. 

After regaining their original names of SEATRUCK PRECISION and SEATRUCK PERFORMANCE the “Heysham max” vessels will replace CLIPPER PENNANT and SEATRUCK PANORAMA on the growing Warrenpoint - Heysham route.  Current speculation is that one of the displaced Warrenpoint vessels will replace CLIPPER RANGER at Dublin which would in due course free her up for charter elsewhere (CalMac has been suggested but whether that happens or not remains to be seen) and allow further growth on the successful and rapidly expanding Liverpool route. 

Regardless of what happens I’m sure any Seatruck vessels which become available will be in demand!
