The second of two RoPax ferries for the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador has been named and launched at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania. The 80-meter ice class ferry is named MV Legionnaire. Beneath the text there is a video of the naming and launching at Damen.

The ferry can carry up to 60 cars and 200 passengers, when it goes into operation next year.
The Danish ship design company Knud E. Hansen A/S, headquartered in Elsinore is behind Concept Design, Tender Design and Basic Design. A sister vessel, MV Veteran, was launched from Galati shipyard in April this year.

The vessel is designed in collaboration with Fleetway Inc. for the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is intended for the route from Newfoundland to Fogo Island and Change Islands, and is specifically designed for operations in conditions of thick ice.
