Berlioz leaving Dover

Eurotunnel Completes Sale of Former MyFerryLink Ships to DFDS

Eurotunnel has completed the sale of its two MyFerryLink ships to DFDS.

The MyFerryLink business was shut down by competition regulators when DFDS and P&O Ferries complained to the Competition Commission because of monopoly concerns.

The Berlioz and Rodin vessels were sold to DFDS in 2015 but due to an order imposed by a Paris court they could not complete the transfer within five years.

In 2015, Carsten Jensen, senior vice president at DFDS said

"This ends a long period of uncertainty for both our employees and our customers on the Channel as this agreement gives us the platform needed to create a sustainable ferry service on the Channel. It also means that we have an equal number of French and UK flagged ships on the Channel, making the service a truly Anglo-French partnership, which we believe is in everyone’s best interests."

The ships are now deployed on the Dover routes.
