The 1978-built, 2,140-dwt, 6,507-grt, vehicle and passenger ferry Purbeck is seen in this photograph while she was underway off England on July 22, 2002. Photo by Douglas Cromby.

She was built in Le Havre, France by ACH-Societe Nouvelle de At et Ch du Havre, (ACH-Construction Navale) for Brittany Ferries, France. She entered service in June of 1978 as Purbeck. Through all of her years of operation Purbeck has never had her name changed despite a sale in May of 1994 to Channel Island Ferries, England. When this picture was added to the archives in 12/2002 she was still listed as operational as Purbeck under the management of Channel Island Ship Management, U.K.
