Brittany Ferries sells Cap Finistère to GNV

Brittany Ferries has confirmed it is in the final stages of negotiation for the sale of Cap Finistère to Italian shipping company GNV.

It comes as the Roscoff-based company prepares to welcome its next ship to the fleet. Salamanca will arrive in Bilbao in the next few days, completing her six-week voyage from China.

“Cap Finistère has served us well for the last decade and she will be missed by crew, passengers and freight drivers,” said Christophe Mathieu CEO Brittany Ferries.

“She is a fine ship and, I am delighted that GNV will be her new owner. We are now ready to finalise the deal and to bid her a fond farewell.”

Cap Finistère has served Brittany Ferries since 2010 and has taken millions of holiday makers to the beautiful regions of northern Spain. She has also transported thousands of freight units across the Bay of Biscay.

Her service, alongside ships like Pont-Aven and Normandie, have helped boost tourism, enrich regions and cement partnerships that will be continue with the introduction of Salamanca and Santoña this year and in 2023.

Constructed in 2001, Cap Finistère has run from Portsmouth to Santander and Portsmouth to Bilbao routes in her time with Brittany Ferries, and can carry up to 1,595 passengers or 110 freight units.
