  1. The countdown has begun: https://galicia-brittanyferries.com/index.php/the-galicia-the-new-brittany-ferries-ship/
  2. There are some photos of her interior here, from when I travelled on her back in 2013. https://bfenthusiasts.com/bfe/gallery/category/90-onboard/

  4. Hi Peter. The book has been published, and makes for a very good read for the enthusiast in us I'd chase your bookseller, mine was received direct from FerryPubs.
  5. Add to those the three weekly sailings by BF from March 2021, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday's (from Cork/Rosslare). Ireland will have its most comprehensive schedule to France for some time.
  6. Save the date! The inauguration ceremony for Galicia's entry into the Brittany Ferries fleet will be taking place virtually on the 27th November. Everyone will be able to take part via a weblink, which will include a comprehensive tour of the vessel, interviews with key members of staff and include some beautiful images and film which showcases the vessel and the new technologies used onboard. Watch this space for more info.
  7. A stormy morning too - video from the Plymouth Herald: https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/news/plymouth-news/gallery/britanny-ferries-pont-aven-2020-4653097?345=
  8. Shippax is reporting that the Honfleur is due to leave Flensburg on Sunday, and will be towed to an unspecified port in Norway to await a buyer. She would the be towed to a shipyard for finishing. Photo taken today - plenty of work left to do sadly!

  10. It's back, but for how long? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-54611644
  11. It does appear to be the case, and also unaccompanied freight. https://lemarin.ouest-france.fr/secteurs-activites/shipping/37501-po-ferries-renonce-au-fret-non-accompagne-calais
  12. Amongst all of the excitement surrounding Galica, the keel for Brittany Ferries third e-flexer (Santona) was laid today at the CMI Jinling Weihai Shipyard. They're certainly churning this class of ship out at a rate of knots!
