Ostend Spirit has been sold to the same Turkish breaker who bought the Pride of Dover. I am reliably informed that there are a number of issues to sort out both in relation to her sale and her preparation for departure from Tilbury, which will *not* be imminent.

Watch this space. Wink

Hi,

there has been talk of that for a few months now but so far she has stayed at Tilbury. It is believed there are legal issues having to do with the bankruptcy of Trans Europa Ferries which prevent her from sailing.

Kind regards
Cedric
