The problem has been identified, but the repair will require the failed engine to be swapped out and replaced, so it is with regret that the crossing scheduled for today has been cancelled.   We are exploring options for transporting the urgent chilled foods across over the weekend, and will provide an update as soon as we can. A further update will be issued once we know when the repair has been finished and the remainder of the items on board can be shipped, but we expect this to be Tuesday 26th or Wednesday 27th December.   Please accept our apologies for the obvious inconvenience that this has caused, and be assured we are doing all that we can to minimise further disruption to the freight service.

Customer Update – Scheduled Maintenance for Gry Maritha and Lyonesse Lady, October 2023.

Gry Maritha and Lyonesse Lady will be coming out of service on Sunday 15th October 2023 for their routine maintenance program.

We wanted to give you as much notice as possible, to allow for pre ordering goods in preparation for this short period of reduced service.

We are planning on both vessels returning to service on Monday 30th October 2023.

We do not anticipate any major problems as both vessels have undergone regular routine maintenance throughout the season.

During this time Scillonian III will be carrying all freight to and from the islands, and Swift Lady will be providing the service to the off-islands. Please keep this in mind when placing orders as we will have some restrictions on freight.

Please note - Swift Lady can only carry small items and limited quantities and that bulk orders and large heavy items cannot be carried. No single item can be more than 20kg – although pallets are lifted aboard on St Mary’s, the vessel is unloaded on the off-islands by hand. Some dangerous goods cannot be carried on Swift Lady, all freight is carried at the discretion of the Skipper.

We would like to advise all customers to stock up on non-perishable items, including frozen food & hazardous items (DGs), as we will be prioritising time critical/perishable freight during this time.

Please could you make sure ALL freight is booked in with our freight office in Penzance at least 24 hours prior to delivery.

We appreciate your patience during this time and should you have any questions, please contact us at Penzance Quay on 01736 334249 or St Mary’s Quay on 01720 424230.

The vessel is currently on route to Penzance, where she will berth on the outer North Arm for our team to conduct inspections. We regret to inform you that the scheduled freight sailing for Wednesday 8th February will be cancelled.

Once we have received a full report of the inspection, we will release further updates on Wednesday afternoon. However, we are hopeful that the Gry will return to service and will sail on Friday 10th February 2023 as per the schedule.

Customer Update – Scheduled maintenance for Gry Maritha  and Lyonesse Lady, March 2023.

Gry Maritha and Lyonesse Lady will be coming out of service on Sunday 19th March 2023 for their routine maintenance program.

We wanted to give you as much notice as possible, to allow for pre ordering goods in preparation for this short period of reduced service.

We are planning on both vessels returning to service on Friday 31st March 2023.

We do not anticipate any major problems as both vessels have undergone regular routine maintenance throughout the season.

During this time Scillonian III will be carrying all freight to and from the islands, and Swift Lady will be providing the service to the off-islands. Please keep this in mind when placing orders as we will have some restrictions on freight.

Please note - Swift Lady can only carry small items and limited quantities and that bulk orders and large heavy items cannot be carried. No single item can be more than 20kg – although pallets are lifted aboard on St Mary’s, the vessel is unloaded on the off-islands by hand. Some dangerous goods cannot be carried on Swift Lady, all freight is carried at the discretion of the Skipper.

We would like to advise all customers to stock up on non-perishable items, including frozen food and hazardous items (DGs), as we will be prioritising time critical/perishable freight during this time.

Please could you make sure ALL freight is booked in with our freight office in Penzance at least 24 hours prior to delivery.

We appreciate your patience during this time and should you have any questions, please contact us at Penzance Quay on 01736 334249 or St Mary’s Quay on 01720 424230.

During this period of time we will only be carrying essential chilled and perishable goods, and reduced general goods onboard Scillonian III. Unfortunately, we have limited capacity on Scillonian III compared to Gry Maritha. This limited space will be allocated on a first come first served basis, with only booked and confirmed items accepted on day of shipment.

All bookings will need to be confirmed with quantity and weights no later than 15:00 the day before intended delivery via email: freight@issg.co.uk.

If we cannot accept your booking due to being at capacity, we will contact you at the earliest opportunity and advise you and will ask if convenient to transfer your booking to the next available sailing.

Essential “General Goods” must also be booked and will be accepted Monday to Friday between 10:00 – 15:00. (these may not be shipped on day of delivery).

Subject to completion of engine trials, we are expecting the Gry Maritha to resume service, on Friday 8th April, departing Penzance at a later time of 20:30. The crew will unload in St Mary's on Saturday 9th April at approximately 07:00.

This year’s scheduled maintenance has been incredibly busy, with steel repair, port main engine renewal and painting; alongside a number of planned maintenance items, which have taken place together with her annual surveys.

The Gry is now in Penzance wet dock for completion of the refit having undocked last night, Monday 4th April from the dry dock. The delay by one day is a result of the additional steelwork repairs and subsequent inspection and testing that is required in accordance with Lloyds Register rules and regulations.

We would like to thank the crew of the Gry Maritha, our support teams and Penzance Dry Dock who have worked back-to-back 12-hour shift patterns to complete the works and minimise disruption to the freight service.

We’d also like to extend our gratitude to Scillonian III and our freight teams in Penzance and St Mary’s, who have continued to deliver freight during this time. And most importantly to you, our islanders, for your patience and understanding.

Thank you once again.

Please contact Penzance Quay on 01736 334249 or St Mary’s Quay on 01720 424230 with any queries.

Due to the predicted weather forecast of high seas and strong winds, there is a strong possibility that the Gry Maritha will not be able to sail as per the published schedule, as the weather conditions will not allow for a safe return back to Penzance.

We have looked at all options for a crossing on Monday 6th December, but the large spring tides with low water at midday has ruled this out.

The master will continue to monitor the conditions and we will update you further tomorrow morning.

Gry Maritha Update- change to schedul for Friday 14th May

We regret to inform you that due to circumstances outside our control, the Gry Maritha will miss Friday’s sailing (14th May) and instead will return on Monday (16th May). This has been caused by the delay in sourcing engine parts which have had to be flown from America.

As a result of the delay, we will be running an additional Scillonian III sailing on Sunday 16th which will only carry freight. We are working extremely hard to ensure that service will return to normal on Monday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued patience.

Customer Notification: Gry Maritha Update

The Gry Maritha is still undergoing her schedule annual maintenance program, and unfortunately there is going to be a further delay to seeing her return into service. This delay is due to a wait on receiving a vital engine part which we are yet to take delivery on in addition to the weather stalling the ships departure from the Dry Dock.

We are aiming to release the ship from the Dry Dock early next week and we estimate the Gry Maritha being back into service on the 14th May.
