In 2007 "Seacat Isle of Man" returned to the IOMSPC having been given a new company livery and renamed "Snaefell VI". Also at this time the Steam Packet Company had purchased a much larger Seacat vessel that had originated from the US Navy. Given the new name of "Manannan" she underwent a major re-build in Portsmouth and was introduced to company service during May 2009.

For a short period both the Mananannan and Snaefell VI operated alongside each other as depicted in this latest IOM Steam Packet artwork entitled "Arrivals and Departures" from Philip Welsh.
