I read somewhere that they were going to swap the rosters of Stena Estrid and Stena Adventurer.

Hardly likely for the reasons above, mainly that Estrid will still be smaller than Adventurer and she seems to work the busier sailings.

Sounds like madness given there are already times when Adventurer is full of freight on her night sailing!  Its for the same reason the intention is to run FSG777 on Ulysses schedule - thatís generally the busier sailing

Going back to the  topic of Hull 777  ..... I am south of the Boarder and I was like a lot of readers really very sad to hear of H&W closure  . It seems a shame that we have such a fabulous  amenity going into Liquidation and there again we see  FSG are unable to keep up with their management of their new builds ??.... This will never happen but here goes , If common sense were to prevail why cant the modules for the new ship be floated over from Poland to Belfast and the ship could be built here  in Ireland creating jobs and saving employment . Irish Ferry  Irish jobs, sounds crazy but will never happen .

And I noticed they were painting the hull on Honfleur over the weekend.

Hull 780 - Leevsten - appears to be taking on fuel this morning and a lot of progress on 781 the last week.

Painting continuing on Honfleur

Talk on the Facebook that IF next new build might come from China and not FSG.

https://www.tradewindsnews.com/shipyards/irish-ferries-eyes-china-for-next-ropax-amid-delays-in-germany/2-1-658054?fbclid=IwAR14aVlGl5VQ6aIJN2Y6rApq2xCrLFoN4FJsn_0hANmxXNNgidxKOgiUSLk

One of the yards mentioned is Avic Weihai where the Stena EFlexer series are being built. Obviously would be a big delay if rumors are true and a new ship ordered and designed.

Unlikely but not impossible IF could even charter a version of the E Flexer themselves, Brittany Ferries and DFDS seem happy with the concept.

We may find out next thursday, when the company issues a trading update.

I would be surprised if Hull 777 is cancelled. The Shipyard is settling down,
