Stena Line has announced details of a new addition to its northern corridor fleet.

From early November 2009 the ferry company will introduce a third ship, the Stena Navigator, on its Stranraer to Belfast route. The vessel will cater for both passenger and freight traffic with a capacity of up to 1,500 passengers and up to 280 cars or 50 lorries.

Dermot Cairns, Stena Line’s general manager for travel on the Irish Sea, said, “The introduction of the Stena Navigator will give us the opportunity to provide our customers with an increased number of travel and timetable options. The additional capacity on the route will also enable us to expand in time for what we hope will be a more buoyant 2010.

“Whilst trading conditions remain challenging, Stena Line is confident about the future and is putting the necessary investment in place to ensure that it can leverage a competitive advantage when the economic upturn arrives. We will announce details of our revised timetable over the next few weeks.”
