Two passenger ferries operated by MBRS Lines are: MV Virgin Mary ("VM")
and MV Mary the Queen ("MTQ"). VM is an ex New Zealand Cooke Strait
car ferry which has been in Philippine service since about 1999. MTQ is
an ex UK Isle of Man ferry which has been in Philippine service since
about 1995. Both ships are well able to handle rough seas (barring
deterioration of this capability while in under-maintained Philippine
service). Both MV and MTQ routinely carry passenger loads well above
3-hundredish. My understanding is that an (ex?)-governor of Romblon
province is the big wheel at MBRS. Both these ships normally ply
Manila<->Caticlan; however, this being the low season for Boracay, the
ships are currently underemployed (VM is out of service and MTQ is
making one trip per week).
