Isle of Man Steam Packet Ferries provides freight, passenger and vehicle services between the port of Douglas and four ports in England, as well as towns in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Both fast craft and conventional vessels make up a modern fleet providing high levels of on-board facilities including the 96-metre catamaran named Manannan, the largest of its type on the Irish Sea which has recently undergone a complete refurbishment.
