While exploring what were good ferry spots for the Cross Channel ferries in France, I sudenly remembered about this pretty isolated island located just south of Bretagne. I said: Belle Ile en Mer! It is served by a multitude of POF during the summer and year round by Oceane's MV Bangor (2006) and MV Vindilis (1998). Both are Ro-ro ferries with ~35 cars capacity. Both have two side doors similar to the Coho's and the Bangor has a stern door similar to the NorEx and NorAd. The way in which cars load and unload is pretty special (see photo here) but seems efficient. Those are definitely on my to-ride list next time I'm around!
And some more: The Channel islands are also served by ferry, as one could imagine. The only car ferry operator on the run is Condor Ferries, which has a fleet of 3 high speed car ferries and a regular car ferry. See their fleet here. Interesting to note that the fares are not posted on their website.

Those ferries are so futuristic-looking! Interesting to note that they were built around the same time as BCF's FastCats were built. I guess there was a real fast-ferry craze back in the late-90s and early-2000s.
