Diane Poole OBE Head of PR and Communications said: ‘We were delighted to welcome the NI Ferry Enthusiasts Group down to Harland and Wolff so they could enjoy a one of a kind, behind the scenes experience of all that goes on and get a real taste of the work that happens at the Dry Dock. The group had the opportunity to ask any burning questions they had, take lots of photos and then share them with fellow ferry enthusiasts.”

Steven Tarbox of NI Ferry Enthusiasts said: “It was great to be able to visit Harland and Wolff to get a better sense of what goes on when a vessel such as Stena Superfast VII is dry docked, and fantastic to be able to ask questions and get answers from someone as knowledgeable as Senior Master Alistair McCarlie.

“I would like to say thank you to everyone at Harland and Wolff and Stena Line who made our visit possible.”
