Cat :
For the comfort and safety of our passengers, as required by international regulations for all high-speed vessels, an annual periodic survey of the hull out of the water must be carried out under the control of a classification society, for us the Bureau Véritas. SPM Ferries chose to carry out this check before the tourist season. The ships will leave one after the other in St John’s to be put out of the water, the St Pierre slipway do not have the capacity to welcome us. Technical verifications will also be carried out. The Nordet will be absent from the archipelago from 4 to 17 March, and Suroit from 18 to 31 March. Changes were made on the schedules for Fortune so that no rotation will be cancel.
