Displaying items by tag: Former HSS For Sale Again
The Stena Explorer, once one of the world’s fastest large ferries, was sold in October to Turkish firm Karadeniz Holding who were planning to convert it into a high-tech floating office.
It was taken from Holyhead to Turkey last year and as Afloat adds following the withdraw of the HSS craft from the route that closed in September 2014.
But now the ferry - that originally cost £65m and first came on the Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire route in 1996 - is available to buy again.
Its price has fallen somewhat since its unveiling 20 years ago and is now available for $6.5m, around £4.5m.
For more on the story, the Daily Post has a report here.
