Gry Maritha Notification – Friday 18th October

Due to the forecasted wind & sea conditions, the Gry Maritha will not be sailing today as scheduled.  The Gry will now depart Penzance in the early hours of Saturday morning, to arrive in Scilly mid-late morning.

We will do our best to get as much freight off and delivered as early as possible, however, we also have to work the berth around the Scillonian III. This may cause a delay in some freight deliveries.

Sorry for the inconvenience, we will keep you updated of any changes.

Customer Freight Notice: Schedule maintenance program for Gry Maritha and Lyonesse Lady 2019

The Gry Maritha and the Lyonesse Lady will be coming out of service on Sunday 6th October for their routine maintenance program. We wanted to give you as much notice as possible, so that you can prepare for the 10 days that both vessels will be out of scheduled service.

Please keep this in mind when placing orders during this period and we will have some restrictions on freight. The Swift Lady will only carry small items and minimum quantities during this time. Please note that bulk orders and large items cannot be carried. No single item can be in excess of 25kg If you have any emergency requests for freight during this time or have any questions, please contact St Mary’s Quay on 01720 424230 We are planning for both vessels to return to scheduled service around the 16th /17th October We appreciate your patience during this time and should you have any questions, please contact us at Penzance Quay on 01736 334236 or St Mary’s Quay on 01720 424230.
