It's being built by Hyundai so maybe Jackson's will be doing the servicing? ;) 

Just to be pedantic Hyundai heavy industries is long since separated from Hyundai automotive.

I think it looks quite good - modern but definitely a steammie boat.

Pop over to YouTube and watch blue star ferries docking like a boss to see their products capabilities.

Well the fact that it's in Steam Packet colours and has 'STEAM-PACKET.COM written down the side of it does kind of give the impression of it being a 'steammie' tbf.

I get that Chef, but it does have an overall steammie look, I think.  I may be looking superficially at the livery, but it looks OK to me.  Not being a naval architect or particular authority on boats, I just thought I would put forward my view ahead of the expert crowd who will tell is all why it is so wrong. :cool:

The last Snaefell only left service about 10 years ago.

Quick survey of junior personnel known to me (under 12s)...one vote for ’Godred Crovan’; one vote for ‘Ramsey’; two votes for ‘Manx Maid’ ; one vote for ‘Snaefell’ one vote for ‘Kipper’.

I can see it being named

맨 섬 사람인 남자

or

모아 나 아일랜드

I quite like the look of it and it seems it will be more manoeuverable too.

On the contrary, I think it’s rather unlikely to be called ‘Yum, yum...this Labrador tastes delicious’.
