MV Utne joining the CalMac fleet in 2022
Following the Ministerial announcement, we are pleased to confirm that MV Utne will be joining the CalMac fleet in summer 2022.
The vessel will be deployed on the Oban-Craignure service throughout the summer period, replacing MV Coruisk as the second vessel on this route. In winter she will be the second service vessel, delivering two additional return sailings per day. MV Utne will berth overnight in Craignure allowing an early morning departure from Craignure and a late evening return, delivering the community ambition for an island centric service.
Current plans will see the MV Coruisk be redeployed to resume service on Mallaig/Armadale route in summer 2022, allowing MV Lord of the Isles to deliver additional services to South Uist.
We are in the early stages of the project, and we will share further details with our customers once these are available. In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming MV Utne to the CalMac fleet.
