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:

IOMSPC livery was famously stolen by Cunard Line

You have to hang on to your stuff in Liverpool

If she's bigger than the Ben then she's going to be a tight fit in the Half Tide dock

I’m getting snippets. It’ll carry between 1100-1200 passengers. There’ll be more cabins and premium lounges/seating ( its all about up selling ). Slightly more freight and vehicle capacity. Service speed will be 18/19 knts but it will be capable of sustaining 25. That’ll give a sub 3 hour Heysham for TT, allowing 3 round trips a day at peak demand.

If successful over 3-4 years there’ll be a sister ship, to replace the fast craft.

Of course, if any of that is true, and not man in the pub talk, and I haven’t been in a pub since before lockdown, it raises interesting questions about the viability of Liverpool. it’ll never be full apart from TT, that’s a lot of over capacity, do we need a very expensive terminal for what isn’t our main gateway?
 

 

Should the people's ferry have premium lounges?

Now, would you bet against that....?

Can't you just see it. £50M spent and the boat won't go in it. We need another £25M to widen and extend. Or Peel Ports can sell us another plot of land to build another Terminal.

And as the one we've built is no good now we'll give it to PP.

I wouldn't bet against it being too big for Douglas.

She won’t be going in the half tide dock. The link span is in the river.
