Well she was bought for the Steam Packets venture Mannin line which ran from Great Yarmouth to Ijmuiden (route was 1993-1995, she was bought 1995). The route was successful but they needed an additional ship.

I can't remember the specifics but the route was closed and the ship spent 2 years floating about on charters and covering refits. She probably only spent 4 or 5 months in total on Manx routes, I guess this is just a layover occasion.....

I know someone would know ... thanks Manxships. I think the photo would have been 1996 (rings a bell from a group of photos with occasional dates on the back). Cheers.
