01 November to 07 November 2021 - Ullapool to Stornoway Freight Service

Freight vessel MV Arrow will be re-joining the CalMac fleet on a short-term charter to provide additional freight capacity and resilience to the Ullapool/Stornoway freight service during MV Loch Seaforth’s annual overhaul period.

She is not available for the full duration of MV Loch Seaforth’s overhaul, but will commence operations from 01 November to 07 November 2021. MV Hebridean Isles will operate evening freight service from 18 – 31 October 2021.

As with previous charter, the vessel will be operated by Seatruck on behalf of CalMac and will be a dedicated evening freight service for commercial customers only.

It should be noted that the charter is dependent on another operator completing overhaul and relieving MV Arrow to commence services for CalMac. If there are any delays this will impact the charter agreement with CalMac. Additionally, as with previous charter there is a break clause within the agreement, meaning MV Arrow can be called back with 24 hours’ notice. If MV Arrow is called back, MV Hebridean Isles will operate the evening freight service. Find out more:
