Diamant is Not Forever - But It Was Good Whilst It Lasted!

Photographs  Kevin Bennett 2006

No she doesn't quite have the style of the  LADY OF MANN - but Sea Container's DIAMANT wasn't a bad stand in as the extra passenger ship for the 2006 TT.  As with other second generation Incat vessels she is an attractive vessel and I make no apology for including a large selection of Kevin Bennett's photos taken during the TT period at Liverpool and Douglas. The "clipped" Union flag livery doesn't really suit her though! However, we are unlikely to see her on the Irish Sea again as she heads off to the Mediterranean for a career with her sister operating for Baleria.
