DFDS Sell 'Anglia Seaways'

'Anglia Seaways' sold for service in Greece

May 15th 2019

'Anglia Seaways' came to Norfolkline in July 2000 and has served on various routes. She has been sold to a Greek operator and all crew members will be offered jobs on other ferries

A dear old friend will be leaving us. The freight ferry 'Anglia Seaways' that came to Norfolkline from the Jinling Shipyard in 2000 as 'Maersk Anglia' has been sold to the Mediterranean shipping group Attica.

'Anglia Seaways' started her career on the Scheveningen–Felixstowe route on 8 July 2000 and has since then been just about everywhere in our North Sea network. 'Anglia Seaways' sailed the Irish Sea and was on charter with Seatruck for a period of time. She even sailed the Baltic Sea between Kiel–Klaipeda–Ust-Luga. However, her ‘home waters’ have been those between Vlaardingen and Felixstowe/Immingham, where she has served us and various crews well for many years.

“Despite a reliable service record, however, she has become a bit too small for our North Sea routes with her capacity of a maximum of 121 trailers. In the future, she will therefore be cleaving the waters on a Greek route where her capacity fits much better,” says Jesper Hartvig Nielsen, Fleet Management.

The crew members will all be offered jobs on other ships,” he says.

The sale price is DKK 90 million.
