From Thursday (15th January) the service will not be able to transport low vehicles, trailers, coaches, vehicles weighing more than 26 tons, lorries with overhangs or steps or articulated lorries.
The restriction will be in place for up to 4 weeks due to planned maintenance work on the Yarmouth loading ramp, which means a temporary ramp will be used instead.
Customers with prohibited vehicle types are being advised to travel via Wightlink’s Fishbourne-Portsmouth route.
During the works, foot passengers will embark and disembark by the main vehicle deck.
Wightlink say they are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this essential maintenance, which is being carried out in conjunction with Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners.
