Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft & Co.KG (FSG) has advised Irish Ferries of a further delay to the delivery of the W.B. Yeats. The new ship was due to commence sailings between Ireland and France from July 30 (after an earlier delay).

Irish Ferries had no option but to cancel all the planned sailings to France for W.B. YEATS this Summer, with the ship now likely to commence sailing with Irish Ferries on Dublin / Holyhead as scheduled in September.

Approximately 6,000 bookings will be impacted by this issue.

The postponement is caused by delays in the delivery of interior fitting components for the public areas, as well as the electrical system installation.
