Prolongation of cabestan exploitation

Cat :

This weekend, we received the navigation licenses for both ferries in national and international waters. These documents were indispensable for the beginning of the commercial operation of the ships on Miquelon and Fortune. The operation of the Cabestan will however be extended by a few days in order to allow us to carry out, under the best conditions, the tests with the Nordet so that it is at the same level of exploitation as the Suroit. The cabestan should leave our waters by May 26th.

On May 14, 2018, SPM Ferries commissions the vessel SUROIT. With a capacity of 188 passengers and 18 vehicles, the SUROIT will replace the  Cabestan which should leave our islands at the same dates.

The ship NORDET (sister ship) will follow the path of the SUROIT a month later.

The service will start with passenger transport only at first.

With a greater number of trips, a new direct connection between Miquelon and Fortune twice a week in summer, the Territorial Community of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon strives to facilitate and improve the quality of transport offered.
