"Plymouth has now got Europe's most modern ferry at its disposal”


A NEW £100million ferry set to serve Plymouth for the next 25 years has docked in the city for the first time. Brittany Ferries has launched the Armorique, purpose-built for the popular Plymouth to Roscoff route, with bosses dubbing it "Europe's most modern ferry'.
Offering passengers more space than ever before, Armorique includes a self-service restaurant, two-screen cinema, lounge and various gaming, bar and shopping areas. She can carry 1,500 passengers and 470 cars, while there is room for almost 800 guests in 248 cabins, and 120 crew members.
