On Tuesday morning Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram revived a multi-million pound plan for a new Mersey Ferry – but there is confusion about where the vessel will be built. Tony McDonough reports

Delight at the announcement of the first new Mersey Ferry to be built for 60 years has turned to dismay in some quarters over suggestions it may be built in The Netherlands.

On Tuesday morning Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram said the multi-million pound plan to build a new ferry, first announced in 2018, was to be revived.

He confirmed the build of the new vessel, and an overhaul of one of the existing ferries, would likely be carried out in a joint project between two shipbuilders – Cammell Laird in Birkenhead and Damen Shipyards Group in the Netherlands.

This was originally revealed by LBN in March 2022. The contract and the final details have still to be agreed.
