Bit ironic isn't it. Poland builds a ship to use in the area that was once the center for ship building.

Ironic and sad, but those days are gone.

Quite, but that's just how business works. If you can't or won't do what it takes to compete, you'll be buried by the ones who are willing to go the distance!

From The Shipping Times:

Naming ceremony for latest ship to enter Calmac fleet
quote:

The new mv ARGYLE will be christened at Rothesay on Friday

The latest addition to the Caledonian MacBrayne fleet, MV Argyle, the sister ship of MV Bute, will be named at Rothesay on Friday (May 4).

The new ship, which arrived on the Clyde on Sunday from the Gdansk shipyard where she was built, is currently undergoing final preparatory work prior to the naming. The formal naming ceremony will take place at Mid-day in Rothesay Bay by Tish Timms, wife of Peter Timms, Chairman of CalMac Ferries Ltd.
