MV Dagalien is a roll-on/roll-off passenger and car ferry that operates on the Yell service, operated by SIC Ferries. She is the sister ship of MV Daggri.[1]

History[edit]

The Dagalien was bought in 2003 along with MV Daggri.

In 2003 the ferry, which had been until now known only as B600/2, was named Dagalien and launched.

Layout[edit]

The vessel has a large car deck and an entrance[clarification needed] to the passenger lounge.

The passenger lounge is known as the 'Passenger Saloon'.

There is a passenger saloon with seats, tables, toilets, vending machines and a children's play area. There are two entrances to the passenger saloon.

Service[edit]

Along with its sister ship, MV Daggri, they operate between the ports of Toft (on the Shetland Mainland) and Ulsta (on the Island of Yell). The Ro-Ro ferries are owned and operated by Shetland Islands Council.
