Incat K-Class for English Channel
New Channel Islands operator HD Ferries has chosen Incat K-class catamaran Incat K3 to launch a new link to France.
Established by the family-owned 2Morrow Group, HD Ferries intends to launch the new service between the French port of Saint Malo and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey from March 15. The vessel will offer six crossings per day, providing travellers with a wide range of additional options to complement existing ferry services.
Following the cessation of the Eméraude Lines ferry service in 2005, the States of Jersey, Guernsey and the French region of Brittany sought an additional operator to meet the demand for ferry travel between the Channel Islands and France.
The 2Morrow Group was one of the companies approached and after nine months of investigation HD Ferries has been established to meet the requirement for a regular and reliable ferry service for cars, freight and passengers between Jersey, Guernsey and France.
