Condor Rapide in Cherbourg


Recommended Posts

Water jet maintenance. Liberation is replacing her until Friday with an amended timetable. I was on her yesterday and she seemed to be running fine but about 10 minutes late on each leg. It's been planned since April:

Thinking of sizes of ships that can be used on these lifts, the ship in the animation indicates a large cargo type vessel.  The one in Cherbourg seems quite small and I wonder if these, when installed, are specifically designed for certain types of vessel.  Only ever seen fast craft on the one in Cherbourg, I presume they use it for other vessels too.  I would like to see Liberation on it although is she to big, she normally goes for conventional dry docking in Falmouth.  That equipment must be quite expensive to install so I doubt it is for solely Rapide and NEX.
