[ July 19, 2021   //   ]

DFDS’s newest cross channel ferry, the Côte d’Opale has successfully completed berthing trials in Dover, prior to starting its regular service to Calais next month. Following a further trial, her maiden voyage is scheduled for 4 August. The Côte d’Opale can carry 3,100 lane metres of freight, making it the longest ship on the Channel, and 1,000 passengers. It replaces Calais Seaways, which is currently operating on the Dover-Calais route alongside Côte des Flandres and Côte des Dunes.
