Ex. Bluenose shown in this image as Hull 309, shortly after arrival at Algeciras Spain, March 1999.

It is this at port, the ship was refit, re-named M/S Atlantica under the new owners Euroferries and will sail from, on the route between Algeciras Spain and Morocco.

In this photo, to the left of the ship's bow, the rising mount of land is Gibraltar.  In the foreground can be seen an 'early ancestor' of The Cat ferry which was also operated by Euroferries and sailed a 45 minute route to Ceuta on the North African coast.
