It had been the intention that SUPERSEACAT THREE would recommence the service at the start of 2003 season. However, she suffered a major engine defect following her refit. To provide temporary cover DIAMANT was sent up from the Channel. Unfortunately she had yet to undergo her own annual refit and proved to be somewhat unreliable. 

However, some of her sometimes lengthy voyages to Dublin proved quite entertaining for ship enthusiasts though were something of a trial for ordinary passengers!
