HYANNIS, MA (July 18, 2017) — The Steamship Authority’s high-speed ferry M/V Iyanough is back in service. The ferry made its return this morning, departing Hyannis for Nantucket at 8:15 AM.

The high-speed ferry crashed into the Hyannis Port breakwater on Friday, June 16, injuring 15 people. Authorities say the crew onboard mistook boats and a pole for buoys, resulting in the crash.

Repairs to the Iyanough were completed at the Fairhaven Shipyard. Successful sea trials have been conducted, and yesterday the U.S. Coast guard inspected the vessel and deemed it seaworthy.

“We thank our customers for their patience and loyalty during the time when the Iyanough was out of service for repairs, and we welcome them back aboard our fast ferry,” said Robert Davis, General Manager of the Steamship Authority.

Beginning Tuesday, July 18th, the M/V Iyanough’s daily schedule is as follows:

Depart Hyannis Arrive Nantucket Depart Nantucket Arrive Hyannis
8:15am 9:15am 9:30am 10:30am
11:00am 12:00pm 12:30pm 1:30pm
