DFDS sold CALAIS SEAWAYS to Irish Continental Group PLC.
Built as PRINS FILIP in 1992, this is a ferry that has been working for most Channel operators on routes as Ostend-Dover, Ostend-Ramsgate, Le Havre-Portsmouth and Calais-Dover.
She will now serve the Dover – Calais route again, operated by Irish Ferries as ISLE OF INNISFREE.
Andrew Sheen, Irish Ferries Managing Director, said: “We are delighted be able to add a second ship to our Dover-Calais route, with the ship doubling our frequency with a departure every 2 ½ hours rather than the current 5 hours between sailings.
Passenger capacity: 1,140 – freight: 83 units
