Irish Ferries sells Jonathan Swift for €15.5m

Irish Ferries is selling its High Speed craft, the Jonathan Swift, to Balearia Eurolineas Maritimas which operates routes between mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands.

The vessel is to be delivered by the end of April. It was delivered in 1999 and has since operated on the company’s Dublin - Holyhead route.

It will be replaced by the 2001-built High Speed craft Westpac Express, which was recently redelivered after 20 months on external charter. She is currently undergoing a refurbishment programme to bring her up to Irish Ferries passenger service standards.

The Jonathan Swift was delivered to the group in 1999 at a cost of €38.8m and has been sold for €15.5m.
