I can’t help thinking that new ferry is a bit of an ugly duckling

Have your say

Did you see the photo of the new Gosport ferry which is currently under construction in Croatia?

The ferry company asked passengers what we’d like on the new ship and I requested a heated lounge.

The doors are always open on the current ships, but a warm seat would be welcome especially in this weather.

It’s great that new investment on the crossing is happening and Harbour Spirit arrives early next year.

Plans are also afoot to cover the Portsea pontoon, which will be most appreciated by all users.

As the new ships arrive, the immaculate, faithful ‘Queens’ will be retired from the route.

But I can’t help thinking the new boat is a bit of an ugly duckling though!
