  1. Truckline was formed in 1972 as a freight-only operation between Poole and Cherbourg, with the first sailing on 29 June 1973. During 1985 Brittany Ferries purchased Truckline and a summer-only passenger service began the following year, still operated as Truckline Ferries. By 1989 two freight ships Coutances and Purbeck as well as the passenger ferries Trégastel and Corbière were on this route. As Poole-Cherbourg had substantially grown in popularity, it was decided to replace the ageing Trégastel (1971) and Corbière (1970) with a brand new superferry, the Barfleur. Introduction Barf
  2. Two iPhone shots whilst waiting to cross back to Sandbanks from Brownsea Island on Thursday afternoon.
  3. Good Evening! So Quick Voyage Report from my trip to Cherbourg on Friday. Took advantage of the great BFe offer, managing to get on the Friday departure from Poole, coming back via Portsmouth. Would have done Saturday but was booked up (as was the Portsmouth Friday outbound crossing). So arrived at Poole station into some hazy mist! Cycled down to the harbour and joined the queue. Passing through, finally got told to cycle up to the top vehicle deck. Barfleur was well loaded. Picked up the breakfast meal deal of two mini-croissants, hot chocolate and apple juice before departu
  4. Evening! Visited Sandbanks yesterday in my way to the Poole Boat Show, couple of pictures attached of the Barfleur, MN Pelican and Condor Liberation. Nice place to watch the ferries at Sandbanks, and fairly lucky with Brambles Bush Bay being on the Purbrook side for both Barfleur and MN Pelican. Barfleur looks a lot better condition paintwise than Normandie, shows how the more extensive / longer Caen route has bigger impact.

  7. Hello. this subject may have already been discussed, but concerning the lengthening of the barfleur, according to different sources, the barfy has been lengthened by 9 meters and according to others by 7.20 meters. Does anyone have the truth? A strange thing : in 1991, when i was travelling on the trégastel, there was à model of barfy on board and the légend was : lenght 151 m ( or 150 but not 14x m... Shure !) and 18000 grt ?? (It was a model of the former design) .... Strange
