Pride of Dover

IMO : 8517736

Build : 1986 by SSW Schichau Seebeck Shipyard, Bremerhaven in Germany, nr 93

Here we have a modern(ish) interpretation of the awful looking English Channel ferries we have already seen here on this site (here, here & here). Apparently ugliness was some kind of housestyle for this company. The company (Townsend Thoresen) has been bought by P&O in 1986 and been integrated into a much bigger organization. That integration has made the ugly housestyle gone overboard and the English Channel has become a more beautiful place since. Unfortunately it will take another few decades before the heritage of TT has gone to the scrapyards and disappeared out of sight completely.
