I've been wondering that also. Someone has told me she will be moving on and not running from Newhaven.

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.

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