Having previously carried out similar upgrades to Red Osprey and Red Falcon in recent years, Trimline had a thorough understanding of the technical challenges and were able to call on this experience to deliver an outstanding interior refurbishment to Red Eagle.

During the refurbishment, over 60 Trimline tradespeople carried out the comprehensive scope of work to significantly increase the number of seats from 300 to 550, as well as install a new galley, new toilets, a new pet lounge and a purpose-built Signature Lounge offering a premium club experience.

Modern seating and tables, subtle colours and clever LED lighting create new contemporary spaces. High-capacity Wi-Fi, USB charging points, air conditioning and digital entertainment are just a few of the new features that are now available to passengers on board.

Kevin George, Red Funnel’s chairman and chief executive commented: “Red Eagle marks the culmination of a £7m+ investment programme to provide our vehicle customers with a fleet-wide travel experience that matches the best in the UK ferry industry. Red Eagle’s interior is now right up-to-date with a stunning contemporary new look. Having worked with Trimline on previous major refits, we were confident in their ability to deliver a complex, high-quality project in a short time window.”

Michael Oliver, Trimline Co-Chairman commented “Trimline and Red Funnel have worked together for several years now, so we feel we have a thorough understanding of their brand. We are delighted with the outcome of the refit and feel that the new look Red Eagle now offers a much-improved customer experience.”
