Isles of Scilly passenger ship Scillonian III is set to leave Penzance Dry Dock after a £2 million programme of refurbishments and winter maintenance.
The Scillonian III, which provides a vital link between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly, will leave Dry Dock on Monday (11 February) to undergo sea trials ahead of the 2013 sailing season beginning in March.
As part of a multi-million investment upgrades carried out include new flooring, new lighting, audio visual screens and new catering facilities.
Facilities for disabled passengers have been improved, with a new passenger lift installed that will give wheelchair users direct access to the main deck.
