Brittany Ferries signs a letter of intent for the construction of a new ship with Flensburger

FerryToday Brittany Ferries launched a project to build a new ro-pax ferry, by signing a LOI with the FSG yard in Flensburg.

The final contract will be signed in the spring of 2017.

This new vessel will be positioned in 2019 on the Caen-Ouistreham-Portsmouth link, together with MONT-SAINT-MICHEL. On this route Brittany Ferries provides three daily return trips.

- Length: 185m

- Width: 31m

- Draft: 6.5m

- GT: 42,000

- Maximum number of passengers: 1,680

- Number of passenger cabins: 257 cabins
