On August 7, the traditional coin ceremony took place at FSG shipyard in Flensburg.

For Brittany Ferries and the shipyard it was an occasion to highlight the design process of the hull design, something for which FSG is well respected.

“Passengers will never see Honfleur’s hull, but they will certainly feel its benefit,” said Brice Robinson, Brittany Ferries naval architect, speaking from the keel laying ceremony.

After assembly, HONFLEUR’s hull will be launched in December.
