About us

Founded in 1972 by proud Breton Alexis Gourvennec and a group of fellow Breton farmers wanting to export their cauliflowers and artichokes to the UK, Brittany Ferries is now the leading maritime carrier on the western and central Channel.

About Brittany Ferries

In 1973, Brittany Ferries was a young upstart created by a group of ingenious Breton farmers.That independent, community spirit has led us to become the largest provider of ferry routes across the Channel.

The environment

As a company founded, and still largely owned by French farmers, we have a profound respect for the environments in which we work and are committed to reducing the impact of our operations.

Charities we support

We do whatever we can to be a responsible part of the community. That means supporting a wide range of national and local charities in the UK, as well as a special focus on charities that are near to our ports.
