A NEW high speed service between Ramsgate and Boulogne will start in February 2013, operated by Euroferries.
The company has entered into an agreement with global ship manufacturer Austal to operate a newly built trimaran, measuring 102 metres and with a top speed in excess of 40 knots.
The service will offer four daily crossings, catering for passengers, cars and luxury coaches and a cross Channel journey time of 75 minutes.
At the same time Euroferries will also be introducing an express coach service to operate between Ramsgate, Canterbury and London Victoria.
The launch of the service by Euroferries comes three years after it was set to operate the same route between Ramsgate and Boulogne, but after a number of announced launches it turned out that the company was unable to operate.
