LD Lines has announced the launch of a new fast ferry service linking Dover and Boulogne, effective Saturday, 6 June.
The ferry operator’s new high-speed catamaran, the Norman Arrow, will operate four daily return sailings, at a crossing time of one hour.
Fares on the catamaran service start from £27.50, each way, based on a five-day return, for a car with up to four passengers. Foot passenger fares start from £9 each way, with a same-day return costing £18.
It is planned that the frequency of crossings on Norman Arrow wil be increased to six per day.
The new high-speed ferry can carry as many as 1,200 passengers and either 417 cars or a combination of 30 freight vehicles and 195 cars. It operates at speeds of up to 40 knots.
LD Lines claims that Norman Arrow is the largest fast ferry ever to operate cross channel services. It is the largest diesel-powered catamaran in the world and the first-ever to carry freight at high speeds between England and France, across the Dover Straits.
