World's Biggest Ferry for Ireland

Irish Continental Group is spending more than €165 million on what will be the world’s biggest

ferry

 car ferry for its Dublin to Holyhead route.
The transport company has signed a deal with German firm FSG to build the ship and deliver it before mid-2020.
The new craft will cost €165.2 million and carry 1,800 passengers and crew along with 330 freight containers. It will be the biggest ferry in the world by vehicle capacity, the Irish shipping company said.

 

When it is operating, the new ship is expected to replace the MV Ulysses, which will then take over from the MV Epsilon, a chartered vessel, in ICG’s fleet.
Fáilte Ireland has welcomed the investment as a huge mark of confidence in the Irish tourism sector.
 
Speaking after the announcement, Paul Keeley, Director of Commercial Development at Fáilte Ireland said that the scale of the investment at over €165 million was testament of the confidence that tourism related businesses have in the ability of the Irish tourism sector to continue to grow.
 
 
 
“In the face of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, today’s announcement provides a huge vote of confidence in the Irish tourist industry. Today’s investment in the Dublin to Holyhead route in addition to Irish Ferries previous investment in the W.B Yeats which will service the Ireland to France route from mid-2018, will provide overseas visitors with some of the most modern, largest, and most efficient cruise ferries on the seas and will undoubtedly help the Irish tourism industry to further expand and enhance its potential.”
