Anglia Seaways is a roll on-roll off freight ferry 142.5 metres in length capable of carrying 121 trailers or 1,680 lane metres. It is powered by two Sulzer diesel engines which allow the vessel to reach a speed of 18 knots (21 mph).
The vessel was built at the Guangzhou Wenchong shipyard in China for Norfolk Line, originally being named Maersk Anglia. The vessel first operated on the Scheveningen to Felixstowe route until 2006 when it was moved onto the Vlaardingen to Felixstowe route. In 2009 the vessel was moved to the Irish Sea and deployed on the Heysham to Dublin route.
In July 2010 the vessel was sold to DFDS Seaways and renamed Anglia Seaways - but remained on the Heysham to Dublin route.
In February 2011 the vessel was chartered to Seatruck Ferries and was deployed on the Heysham to Dublin route until January 15th 2012 when Seatruck's own vessel Clipper Pace took over Anglia Seaways' operations.
Then she was transfered over to the Immingham-Rotterdam route which she remained on until April 30 when the vessel was moved onto the Rosyth-Zeebrugge route.
In late May 2012 she was again chartered to Seatruck Ferries to operate on the Heysham-Belfast route.
