The Arran Banner - - Front Page -

The launch date for MV Glen San­nox has been set for Tuesday Novem­ber 21 at the launch­ing berth at Port Glas­gow where she is be­ing built by Fer­gu­son Ma­rine Engi­neer­ing Ltd, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Cale­do­nian Mar­itime As­sets Ltd (CMAL), who com­mis­sioned the new 100-me­tre Ar­ran ferry are hop­ing that Scot­land’s First Min­is­ter, Ni­cola Stur­geon, will at­tend the cer­e­mony.

An an­nounce­ment is ex­pected next week. CMAL orig­i­nally an­tic­i­pated an ear­lier launch date, how­ever this later date is said to now al­low for a fur­ther fit­ting out pe­riod and fits in with the tides which are re­quired for a boat launch which is ex­pected to be open to the pub­lic.

MV Glen San­nox is owned by CMAL on be­half of the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, and will be op­er­ated by CalMac Fer­ries Ltd.
