The M/V Quiberon was a ferry operated by Brittany Ferries between 1982 and 2002. She then operated on the Mediterranean for Euroferrys under the name Guila D'Abundo.[1] In 2010, she was renamed D'Abundo and sent to Alang for scrapping.[2]

Routes served

Quiberon also operated on the Portsmouth - St Malo route during the winter for a number of years towards the end of her career with the company. During her time with Brittany Ferries she visited all of the ports served by the company though her visits to Poole and Cherbourg were due to weather diversions.[3]

Onboard facilities

Facilities available on board the Quiberon included 2 cinemas, 2 restaurants, a Salon de The, 4 shops and more than 280 cabins. She received a full renovation prior to entering service in 1982 and another one in 1990.[4]
