Boulogne and back is back...5 February 2003

Contributed by localrags on Feb 05, 2003 - 02:42 PM

The Dover Boulogne ferry route is back after a ten a year break. The announcement by SpeedFerries that it is to re-open has been welcomed by the Dover Harbour Board.

SpeedFerries, in co-operation with Danish ferry company Mols-Linien, expect to start services in early May with the Speed One, a 91-metre catamaran.

The Port of Dover’s Commercial Director, John Turgoose, said: "It will bring a new dimension to the English Channel.

“This will be the largest and fastest catamaran to operate from the Port of Dover crossing to Boulogne in 50 minutes. With a capacity for 200 cars, four coaches and 800 passengers on her five round trips a day, SpeedFerries will bring significant new capacity.

“We are delighted to be able to offer the choice of another route to Continental Europe especially with the re-introduction of the historic link with the attractive town of Boulogne and its new motorway into south west France,� he said.
