First Look: DFDS’s New Dover – Calais Ferry Côte d’Opale

The newest ferry on the English Channel, CÔTE D’OPALE, is expected to enter commercial service tomorrow evening for DFDS between Dover and Calais. Matt Sudders was onboard for todays press preview event on behalf of NI Ferry Site. Due to ongoing Covid-19 travel restrictions, the event took place while the ship was alongside at Dover.

CÔTE D’OPALE is the fifth vessel to be delivered in Stena’s E-Flexer series and is the ship most changed from the base design to-date. The following pictures are broken down by area. Unless otherwise specified, all photographs are Copyright of Matt Sudders.
