Well spotted, looks good, must have been testing systems, giving the rudders, thrusters a workout.

According to IF sailing update, taking the 02.45 ex Pembroke, unless they have found extra speed, would imagine Oscar will take that sailing.

When the ships come out of liverpool drydock they have to wait a while while the bunders heat up before they can proceed on full power. IOI was in Dublin for Stocking prior to traveling to Rosslare overnight.

Does she not normally take on stores at Rosslare and/or Pembroke? Why would she go to Dublin for this?

Announcement this morning from ICG;

"Sale of Jonathan Swift

ICG announces that it has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement ("MOA") for the sale of the High Speed Craft “Jonathan Swift” to Balearia Eurolineas Maritimas S.A.

The agreed consideration of €15.5 million less brokers commission is payable in cash on delivery less a 10% deposit to be held in escrow. The vessel is to be delivered by the end of April 2018.

The “Jonathan Swift” which was commissioned by and delivered to ICG in 1999 and has since operated on the company’s Dublin – Holyhead route. This vessel will be replaced in our fleet by the 2001 built High Speed Craft “Westpac Express”, which was recently redelivered following a period of twenty months on external charter. She is currently undergoing a refurbishment programme to bring her up to Irish Ferries passenger service standards.

The “Jonathan Swift” was delivered to the group in 1999 at a cost of €38.8m. The disposal will generate a book profit for ICG of approximately €14.0m.

The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes."

Now didn't they do well, they actually replaced the Swift with Westpac Express and it cost them nothing, in fact they have made money on the transaction, fair play Irish Ferries /ICG.
