Ferry Re-Naming Ceremony

Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) has renamed the newest fleet member from MV Utne to MV Loch Frisa.
A small renaming ceremony was hosted in Craignure on Monday 6th June to thank those who have aided in bringing the vessel into service. Attendees included former Argyll and Bute councillor Mary-Jean Devon, children from Ulva and Tobermory primary schools who had won a competition to have their Mull-themed art displayed on the ferry, as well as CalMac crew and local media.

Guests were then given tours of the ferry, and artwork painted by Deborah Campbell gifted to the vessel was unveiled on the passenger deck… more in the printed issue
