Just found out that a big part of my working life has now left Belfast for it’s last journey – to became scrap over here in Sweden. I was there when the first drawing came to our table – I was there when we started up this amazing adventure – I was there during all the refits …. but I wasn’t there when it was tide up for good, because of the the cost of fuel to run it. Beautiful and amazing “Stena Voyager” – one of 3 the biggest and the fastest catamaran in the world: Stena Voyager, Stena Discovery and Stena Explorer.
It’s like losing a bit of myself watching this video. One outstanding way of travelling – and now it will will become razor blades here in my town, Landskrona. So I will be able to say goodbye to him, because for me those fantastic crafts always been male for me.
Stena Voyager is a high-speed ferry owned by Stena Line which used to operate on their Belfast–Stranraer service. It is a member of the HSS 1500 class of high-speed ferries developed and introduced by Stena Line from 1996.
Now Stena Voyager was sold for scrap. She will be towed to Landskrona, Sweden, where she will be broken up by Stena Recycling.
I did post about Stena Voyager last year – about the adventure; about speed, comfort and service
Thanks Stena Line for 35 fantastic years of adventure and hard work – Thanks Stena Voyager for being the highlight of those years. You have given me headaches, love, laughter, scream and shots plus loads of fun and very pleased guests. And thanks for all the fantastic people you gave me to work together with. Tough to read about your last journey but I will be down to say goodbye and after all we ended up on the same place, Landskrona – a beautiful spot to end a great life.
