Fastnet Line's Vessel - The MV Julia

Fastnet Line is a new company, set up in April 2009 specifically to reintroduce the car ferry service between Swansea and Cork that. There has been lots of public interest in the reintroduction of the route and the demand has led to a group of local private investors from both the Cork and Swansea areas to create the company.

The company boasts personnel with many years of experience in the ferry and hospitality industries meaning passengers can benefit from a well run, efficient service. Fastnet Line aim to make the new ferry service the most convenient and comfortable way to cross the Irish Sea.

The Fastnet Line Vessel - MV Julia

The new ship, the MS Julia was purchased for the current operating company, Fastnet Line, in 2009. It was built in 1982 and had previously been used to serve routes in the Scandanavian peninsula. The new ship will be ready for use after some minor modifications to make the ship compliant with Irish regulations. The Julia has 10 decks with a capacity of approximately 440 cars and 30 freight vehicles and a passenger carrying capacity of 1,860. Passenger facilities include 300 passenger cabins, a cinema, a children's play area and restaurants and bars.

Campaign for reinstatement of the Swansea Cork Route

Due to frustration with the ferry service not being reinstated, two local businessmen in West Cork started a Campaign and website in April 2008 to highlight the impact of the continuing lack of the Ferry service.

Following a year of campaigning including work by some local politicians and other organisations including the bringbacktheswanseacorkferry campaign and West Cork Tourism, a passenger & freight ferry service will operate between Cork and Swansea from 1st March 2010. It will be run by a new company (Fastnet Line), financed by a co-op 'Pledge' system to the tune of 3 million euro, a bank loan and other investment capital. After a long process of negotiation, including approval by the Finnish Courts, it was announced in mid-September 2009 that the ship to run the new service had been purchased.
