The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

GA Ferries' ro/ro vessel Romilda

Photo of the ferry Romilda, operated by GA Ferries, Greece. Seen here at Piraeus, Greece, 5 April 2008.

Editor: The Romilda changed names twice. She was previously know as Pride of Canterbury and before that as the Free Enterprise VIII.
She was built in 1974 by Verolme, The Netherlands. She has a loa of 123.6m, beam of 19.5m and measures 5169 tons. She has 3 Screws which can give her a speed of up to 21 knots.
At over 30 years she must have travelled quite the distance. I hope she has been well maintained :)
