Brittany Seas Ships was created by French ferries enthusiasts Antoine H. and Loïc P. under the name Transports Marins Bretons.
It was initially only a Facebook Page dedicated to the ferry companies that serves Brittany, and therefore it is dedicated to Brittany Ferries, Condor Ferries and Irish Ferries. It was then planned to create a website in French and eventually an English Edition which was released on 31st August 2016. When the Translation Work began, it has been decided to give another name to the English Edition, and here comes the name Brittany Seas Ships.

The Department for Transports has awarded a £46,6 millions contract to Brittany Ferries to operate 19 further weekly crossings from 29th March from Plymouth, Poole and Portsmouth in case of a without-deal Brexit.
Brittany Ferries has just unveiled the first of its two-commissioned E-Flexer class RoPax ferries will be named Galicia and Salamanca.
Brittany Ferries unveils today it has reached an agreement with Stena Line AB for the commission of a second E-Flexer class vessel, with the first (ordered a few months ago) to be delivered for Summer 2021, a year later than initially planed.
As the her already-ordered sister, the new E-Flexer Class RoPax ferry will be chartered from Stena Line AB for an initial 5-year period with an option or purchase.
Brittany Ferries’ work horse Normandie began service back in May 1992, on the Ouistreham - Portsmouth for which she has been built. It mean she has kept sailing on this route for 25 years, up to three times a day with the reliability of a Swiss clock. Built to accommodate the growing numbers of passengers traveling to Normandy, she still looks very modern, despite her age.
Willing to make something relaxing throughout a mid-August week end, we decided to make a cruise with Brittany Ferries. That was an occasion to sail aboard a workhorse we haven’t given the attention she deserves the last time we sailed on her five years ago.
A travel report (text and pictures) by Antoine and Benjamin.
Brittany Ferries has confirmed to our colleagues from Shippax it will charter from Stena Line a new vessel for its popular Spain - Great Britain route beginning 2020.
Brittany Ferries has announced during a press conference hold on 19th June it has ordered to the German shipyard Flensburger Schiffbau Gesellschaft its new state-of-the-art cruise ferry for its popular Ouistreham – Portsmouth service.
Earlier this month, Brittany Ferries has announced it has chosen Total to bunker its new LNG-powered ship, which is expected to be ordered in the coming weeks.
In a previous travel report, I wrote I was unlikely to sail abord Bretagne soon. However, I soon really missed my favourite ship on the British Channel. Therefore, our YouTube-channel manager and I wanted to sail aboard her to Portsmouth once again (it is my eigth crossings aboard), in order to propose you a new report of our favourite. Besides, we also decided to spend a few days in Portsmouth, to which we will dedicate a further report.
