    Sealink was synonymous with ferry travel around the British Isles. Sealink & Beyond reviews this famous business from 1969, through privatisation and hostile takeover, until 1995 when the name was quietly dropped. Providing a full operational history, the book places Sealink in the context of an era of rapid change: from the after-effects of Beeching to the Irish troubles, the Falklands War and Thatcherite privatisation, the Sealink story was heavily shaped by a country at a political, economic and social cross-roads. Aspects also explored include marketing, the traveler experience, port operations and cruises. With the former Sealink fleet now dispersed around the globe, the authors have tracked the surviving ships and collated an up to date illustrated fleet list.
