Galicia and Salamanca will be the names of Brittany Ferries’ new ships arriving in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

The names were chosen following a competition among Brittany Ferries’ staff and follow confirmation of the ships’ charter last month.

To be based in Portsmouth, both ships will serve long-haul routes to Spain where passenger traffic has grown by 80 percent in the last ten years.

They represent the second and third new vessels to be delivered post-Brexit, after the arrival of Honfleur which is scheduled for 2019 and will serve Portsmouth-Caen, according to the company.

Galicia and Salamanca represent the next step in a fleet renewal and an investment program worth around EUR 450m for Brittany Ferries. Like Honfleur, both ships will be French-flagged and will be crewed by French seafarers upon arrival in 2021 and 2022.
