For enthusiasts intending to experience the 2024 Isle of Man TT in person, a noteworthy enhancement awaits. The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company introduced a brand-new vessel, the Manxman, in 2023.

Significantly, it’s the company’s first newly commissioned vessel since 1998. Boasting a capacity of 948 passengers, the Manxman surpasses the next-largest ferry in the fleet, the Ben-my-Chree, by over 300 passengers.

Additionally, it provides 10% more lane space dedicated to vehicular transportation. This augmentation holds particular significance for motorcycles, which can be accommodated more efficiently compared to cars.
