Nafeza 2 world - A ferry that will serve Islay and Jura has been launched from a shipyard in Turkey.

MV Loch Indaal is the second of four ferries being built at Cemre Marin Endustri shipyard in Yalova.

The vessel will serve alongside sister vessel, MV Isle of Islay, which was launched in March.

Elaine Anderson, wife of CMAL’s director of vessels Jim Anderson, officially launched the ferry.

Scheduled for delivery in February 2025, MV Loch Indaal can accommodate up to 450 passengers and 100 cars, or 14 commercial vehicles.

It will now undergo further outfitting and preparations in the water before comprehensive sea trials take place.

Once complete, the vessel will be handed over to owners, CMAL.
