France-based shipping company Brittany Ferries has confirmed the order for a new LNG-powered cruise ferry to be built at German Flensburger Schiffbau shipyard.

The investment is part of the company’s investment budget of GBP 175 million (USD 222.9 million).

In December 2016, the duo signed a letter of intent (LOI) for the 42,400 gross ton ship which will be named Honfleur.

As informed, the 1,680-passenger newbuilding will operate on the company’s busiest route from Portsmouth to Caen, with a planned arrival in spring 2019.

The vessel will feature a length of 187.4 meters and a width of 31 meters and will be able to reach a speed of 22 knots.

Upon Honfleur’s arrival, Brittany Ferries’ ship Normandie will move east to serve the Portsmouth-Le Havre route, according to the company.
