186 metres long and over 26,000 tonnes - the Norman Voyager makes a brief visit to Poole
10:03am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
ONE of the largest vessels to enter Poole Harbour, an LD Lines cross Channel ferry, has paid a short visit to the port.
The Norman Voyager, which visited Poole briefly on Tuesday, is 186.5 metres in length and has a gross tonnage of 26,904 – larger than Brittany Ferries Barfleur, which sails between the port and Cherbourg.
Dwarfing the chain ferry on her way through the harbour entrance, the ro-ro ferry Norman Voyager was built in 2008, and operates between Portsmouth and her home port of Le Havre.
She carries lorries as well as passengers and is capable of carrying 550 people and 200 cars, has 109 cabins, a restaurant and shops.
LD Lines is a French shipping company which is mainly a freight operator with deep sea and ferry services, which also operates ferry routes on the English Channel and Mediterranean.
It runs ferry services from Dover, Newhaven and Portsmouth.
