P&O Ferries’ second new ship Spirit of France has arrived in Dover following a four-day delivery voyage from her construction shipyard at Rauma, Finland.

She joins her sister ship, Spirit of Britain, on the Dover-Calais route, which, at 47,500 gross tons each, are the largest ever constructed for operation on the Dover Strait,

Each ship is capable of carrying 160 articulated lorries - twice the freight capacity of the vessels they are replacing. In addition they can also carry up to 250 cars, caravans and motorhomes on a separate vehicle deck.
