On 27th May Red Funnel announced that it is bringing fast ferry construction back to the UK with the building of its new passenger ferry, the red Jet 6, at East Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

After receiving tenders from shipyards around the world, the company placed an order for a 40m high-speed catamaran with Shemara refit LLP for delivery in summer 2016.

Costing £6m, the red Jet 6 will be the first vessel of her kind to be built in the UK for 15 years.
