Hi friends, maybe the Irish sea air has something magical and keeps you young and sprightly?, why didn't you come up with this info some 40 years ago, I would have taken residence on the Irish coast.

Another 38 year old vessel is the "DUBROVNIK" which took us from Dubrovnik to Bari last year; also an Irish Sea ferry, formerly the "CONNAUGHT".

That shows how well built these vessels are, francomassa, 38 years at sea is a rarity nowadays. More younger vessels have been reduced to scrap iron.
Thanks and regards.

Now at her advancing age, she plies the more docile waters (Not everytime) of the Med. 38 years and still good looking.
Long may she sail the seas.
Thanks and regards

Nice to see this old girl still in service, used to operate between Fishguard and Rosslare in the 90`s on the Irish Sea.
