Bac Royan - Le Verdon

The Gironde General Council, in charge of maritime transport, had commissioned its first double-ended vessel, "La Gironde", in 2002. The launch of this second ferry, L'estuaire, satisfies the development of traffic on the Le Verdon-Royan line (800,000 passengers and 240,000 vehicles per year). This boat, christened the "La Gironde", is 71 metres long and can carry 600 passengers and 150 cars .

The length of the crossing, loading and unloading included, is 15 to 20 minutes instead of 35 minutes previously.

"L'estuaire", the second double-ended ferry was commissioned in late 2009. This boat, 78 metres long, 18.5 metres wide and weighing more than 1,600 tonnes, has a capacity of 146 vehicles, six heavy goods vehicles and 600 passengers. It covers the Le Verdon-Royan crossing, i.e. 6 km, in 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the current.
