Daggri passes Samphrey
Daggri, one of the two ferries that ply the Yell Sound ferry route is seen here passing the island of Samphrey. The photo was taken from her sister ship Dagalien (see HU4376 : Dagalien - Yell Ferry, Booth of Toft). For more information on these ferries see the shared description below.
Dagalien and Daggri - Yell Sound ferries
Dagalien and Daggri are sister ships which ferry passengers across Yell Sound from Booth of Toft on Mainland, Shetland to Ulsta on Yell.
They were both built in Gdansk in Poland, and entered service in 2004 and have the identical dimensions: Length: 65.36m; Breadth: 13.8; Draught 3.8m; Gross Weight 1861 tonnes.
They can each carry 95* passengers, 31 cars and 4 trucks with a crew of 4 or 5.
*(May be as many as 144 if extra passengers stay in their cars I think)
Dagalien replaced the Hendra, while Daggri replaced the Bigga.
