Scillonian III Sunday Sailings To Scilly Announced

scillonian gangwayThe Isles of Scilly Steamship Company has announced details of Sunday sailings for the Scillonian III, in her 36th year of service.

Chief Executive Jeff Marston outlined plans to increase capacity during the peak summer season last December, but the dates have just been finalised.

The Sunday sailings from Penzance to St Mary’s will begin on Sunday 7th July and continue throughout July and August until Sunday 8th September. These sailings will be in addition to Scillonian III’s regular Monday to Saturday schedule, which runs from Monday 25th March until Saturday 2nd November.

Jeff Marston said: “By offering ten weeks of Sunday sailings in the peak summer season, we are demonstrating our commitment to supporting the communities of the Isles of Scilly by giving passengers the greatest possible flexibility for making travel arrangements.

“Customers travelling on Scillonian III will also benefit from the recent refurbishment of the ship, which is aimed at improving the travel experience for all of our passengers.”

The Scillonian III had undergone a £2 million programme of refurbishments and winter maintenance. Upgrades carried out include new flooring, new lighting, audiovisual screens, new bathroom facilities and new catering outlets, with a café/bar and separate coffee shop operated by Coffee Republic.

Facilities for disabled passengers have been improved, with a new passenger lift installed that will give wheelchair users direct access to the main deck without having to use a stair lift, and a designated space for disabled passengers including access to a new disabled bathroom.
