On the 26th March the Wightlink Portsmouth-Fishbourne Saint Class vehicle and passenger ferry St. Helen was retired from service having been a stalwart to the service since 1983.

The vessel bid a final farewell to her homeport of Portsmouth on 17th April and sailed to Hythe on Southampton Water for lay-up at the same tidal berth at Solent Refit occupied by her sister, the St. Catherine/GB Conte, in 2010. Before withdrawal it was confirmed that the St. Helen had been sold to Delcomar, owners of the GB Conte.

The ship has taken the name Anna Mur (above) and by the end of June was very much a Delcomar vessel in appearance.
