This ferry made a dramatic final docking after crashing into land at speed!! The ship was known by the name of “The Pride of Calais” until 2012, and then it was renamed as “Ostend Spirit” and served for another two years! But, after travelling between Dover and Calais for 22 years, the owners decided that it was time to put this ferry to rest.

This ferry made a dramatic final docking after crashing into land at speed!!

The ferry was crashed into the seashore, at a ship-breaking yard in Aliaga, Turkey. As you can see in the video below, the ferry came close to the land but it didn’t stop. It seems that the ferry had some problems with decreasing the speed. The reasons why the ferry didn’t stop are unknown, but after all, this is a cool way to retire a ship. Check it out!
