CANARY ISLANDS: New role for veteran

A former Irish Sea freight workhorse, once P&O’s Ibex, has opened a new Boluda Lines service from mainland Spain to the Canary Islands. Reyes B (1979/6,310gt), built in Japan to serve P&O’s Fleetwood-Larne route, later had North Sea spells as Norsea and Norsky before returning to the Irish Sea as Ibex with an extra freight deck. Renamed European Envoy in 1998, the vessel was on the short-lived Mostyn-Dublin route from 2001 before sale in 2004. Now, as Reyes B (pictured), her weekly round trip leaves Seville to call at Arrecife, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.
