Time to bid goodbye to the sight of this ferry plying our waters, I'm afraid. My spy writes:
Just to inform you that TEF's ferry the Primrose has received a sternramp for her charter between Spain and Morroco. She will be chartered for 3 months and is expected to do her first sailing for a company called COMARIT on 22 June. She also recieved additional cabins and Pullman seats.
Its highly unlikely she will ever return to Ramsgate. Her first appearance was in 1994 when she was chartered to Sally Line for the Dunkirk route due to a fire on board the Sally Star. She then operated for Ostend lines as a spare vessel. In 1998 she was sold to Denval marine and chartered to their ferry division, TEF.
So, one down and, what, five to go? Meanwhile, six months after our MP trumpeted the thing, there's still no real indication that the new Euroferries fast cat is doing anything other than stalking the Canaries!
