Emeraude Cat

Any one know why the Cat Emeraude France has been on the wall in Newhaven for a couple of month? Pete

I've been wondering that also. Someone has told me she will be moving on and not running from Newhaven.
Cheers mate. Jim (Also Seaford)

Hi,

She was in Sunderland for quite a while for servicing before leaving in mid July.

Post Emeraude France

The trade press report that Emeraude have terminated her charter and returned her to Hoverspeed. When Emeraude France was in Cherbourg for her annual refit she was replaced on the St Malo - St Helier service with the Emeraude owned Fjellstand Jumbocat, Solidor 5. During this period Emeraude decided that Solidor 5 was its most economical option.
After her refit, Emeraude France spent only 10 days in service before Hoverspeed were informed that the charter was not being renewed. It was reported that Emeraude France left for Sunderland to be laid-up alongside her sister, Seacat Scotland.

Just seen on the PLA website that the EMERAUDE FRANCE arrived in Tilbury Dock on the 14th December for lay up. The SEACAT DIAMANT has been there since the Dover route closed.

I'm going to be over Gravesend Way on Monday. Hopefully I'll be able to get some pictures of them from across the river.

Emmeraude France sailed from Sunderland on 13th or 14th December after lengthy lay up in the former Doxfords covered shipyard, apparently the Rapide or Diamante is due in the Wear on Friday 16th for overhaul.

Seacat Rapide is at present berthed in the Wear looking a bit shabby, I think she arrived late yesterday or this morning.

I wish you luck newda898, you can't see anything from the Tilbury side let alone the Gravesend side, they are tucked away behind high walls

Hi Pat, so she returned to Sunderland after her Emeraude charter, then returned south for Newhaven where she spent much of the summer laid up, before returning to Sunderland only to return south yet again, albeit for Tilbury? Seems a rather strange move!

On completion of her charter to Emeraude earlier this year Emeraude France returned to lay-up in Sunderland. During the last week of July she was moved to Newhaven, being available to Hoverspeed at Dover should the need arise. I can find no trace of a return to Sunderland from Newhaven at the end of Hoverspeed's season.

Hi Justin, she was definately in Sunderland until 14th December when she left for Tilbury, she probably did more miles between the South coast and Wearside than she did in the channel.

Anybody know when she left Newhaven (after her lay-up there which began in July) to return to Sunderland?
