New Brittany Ferries E-Flexer Ro-Pax hits the water

The next ship slated to join Brittany Ferries’ fleet was recently launched into the water for the first time.

Built by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard Weihai, the LNG-powered Salamanca is the second of three E-Flexer-class Ro-Pax vessels ordered by Brittany Ferries.

The operator claims Salamanca will be the first LNG-powered ferry to serve routes to and from the UK when it begins operational sailings in the spring of 2022. It will sail under the French flag and will be crewed by French seafarers.
