WB Yeats Ferry Sets Sail After Delays

   December 15, 2018 ,   Cruise Industry

Irish Ferries' long-delayed, EUR 147 million WB Yeats cruiseferry, which was originally due to have been delivered in July 2018, and subsequently delayed until September, is finally expected to arrive in Dublin, Ireland next week.

The setback was due to "delays in the delivery of interior components for public areas and on the electrical system installation in the hull and deckhouse", according to German shipbuilder Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft & Co.KG.
