Ferguson Marine (Port Glasgow) has completed another significant milestone in the dual fuel ferry project with the installation of the bulbous bow on Hull 802.

GLEN SANNOX is scheduled to be delivered between July 2022 and September 2022.

Hull 802 is scheduled to be delivered between April 2023 and July 2023.
