Wightlink Ferry

Wightlink is a major ferry company providing passenger and car services to the Isle of Wight, UK. In the summer of 2008, Wightlink introduced two new vessels into service on the route between Lymington and Yarmouth, followed by a third ferry in early 2009. The new ferries are designed to be fully efficient with better passenger facilities.
The three identical ferries are named the Wight Light (launched in January 2008); Wight Sky (launched in April 2008); and Wight Sun (completed in November 2008). Each of the ferries is expected to undertake more than 200,000 trips during their operational lives and will cover more than 750,000 nautical miles.
Insulation by ISOVER allowed a weight reduction of approximately 20 tons, and brought A60 fire retarding systems.
