    Dear Martin,

    Thank you for contacting MarineTraffic Support.
    Please do accept my most sincere apologies for this delay of ours; due to high level of incoming requests it took us more time to handle your request than we would have wanted.

    The Ship Type MarineTraffic lists each vessel under, and the respective icon this assigns to a vessel, depend on the static data details transmitted from the vessels AIS transponder.
     I have looked into the vessel record and, from what I can see IOLAIRE's AIS transmitted ship type is listed as 'Fishing', not as a sailing vessel.
    You can see this here in the vessel's details:

    If we make a change manually to the AIS ship type and the type the vessel is listed under in our system, IOLAIRE's transmissions will eventually override any manual change we make.

    In order for this change to be made properly so as to remain, the vessel's crew will need to update the settings of the AIS transponder with the appropriate ship type.
    If you are aware of who the vessel's crew is and come in contact with them, please feel free to let them know.
    As soon as we receive the required amount of signals with the correct ship type, the vessel's record will be automatically updated.

    I hope this helps clarify things.
    Is there anything else I can do or clarify for you?
    Please don't hesitate to let me know.
    I will be glad to assist.

    Kind regards,
