Isle of Man SP Co
Last Years of the Isle of Man Classics


Each image links to a larger copy which opens in a new window

This page is under construction!




 
This page shows images by Ian Boyle of the last years of the classic Isle of Man boats. I took many negatives of IOMSPCo vessels between 1972 and 1984 and will be adding these slowly since they require quite a lot of tidying up. The images will show the five remaining members of 'The Six', King Orry (4), Tynwald (5), Snaefell (5), Mona's Isle (5) and Manxman (2), the two steam car ferries Manx Maid (3) and Ben-my-Chree (5), plus the diesel ferries Mona's Queen (5) and Lady of Man (2) which retained many characteristics of the post war steamships.
