Epsilon is currently enroute back from Falmouth at an impressive speed of in excess of 26kts if ais is to be believed.

Epsilon lease appears to have been extended with sailings now showing to France and Holyhead up to 16th December 2016 as far as the Irish Ferries Timetable goes.

Possibly, though there should be an investor announcement to accompany any extension.  Could also be that they are testing demand as well of course.

I did read online this morning that Epsilon's charter to Irish Ferries has been extended by 24 months. Surprised nobody on here had picked this up.

Thanks and well spotted the only thing I had come across was a report from Goodbody stockbrokers which had suggesssted that the cost of a new build could be recovered (at current trading volumes) in 2-3 years so that would of seemed to be the obvious choice.
In any case they seem to be keeping the charter extension fairly quiet with no announcement to the press or travel trade.

Epsilon has been out of action for days now and this afternoon she moved off berth and has been at anchor just off Dun Laoghaire (quadrant 1) all day. Has any member got any idea whats up with her?

Apologies in advance for me butchering the language of engineering but apparently it's a piece of kit that thins fuel that has packed up and there isn't one on shelf in Halfords :) New one will take weeks to arrive so they're doing their best to repair the current unit to get her back sailing until the new one arrives.
