Two Sister Ships, PO Pioneer and PO Liberté, Share Historic Meeting in Dover

It is a remarkable and rare occurrence when two sister vessels are reunited in the same port after delivery, however for the PO Pioneer and the PO Liberté this will be an everyday occurrence from now on with the PO Liberté, fresh from her maiden voyage, joining the PO Pioneer on the Dover to Calais route for years to come.

The PO Pioneer, having completed numerous successful crossings since entering service in mid-2023, arrived in Dover on March 1st, 2024. Just hours earlier, her counterpart, the PO Liberté, made her grand entrance after an extraordinary forty-five-day voyage circumnavigating the Cape of Good Hope. This extended journey was necessitated by escalating tensions and hostilities in the Red Sea and Suez regions.

The PO Liberté achieved several notable milestones during her voyage around the cape:

· Longest Voyage for a Double-Ended Ship: She covered unprecedented distances, setting a new standard for endurance.

· Largest Double-Ended Vessel in the World: Alongside her sister vessel, the P&O Pioneer, she now holds this prestigious title.

· First P&O Ferry to Cross the Equator Both Ways: A testament to her versatility and global reach.

· Largest Hybrid Vessel in the Southern Hemisphere: Her innovative hybrid propulsion system places her at the forefront of maritime technology.

As the PO Pioneer settles into her established role, the PO Liberté is undergoing the final stages of outfitting, including soft furnishings, before officially joining her sister in service.

Schulte Marine Concept, the proud partner in this maritime achievement, extends heartfelt gratitude to POF management for their unwavering confidence and trust. Their commitment allowed us to provide the meticulous dedication to these remarkable vessels rightfully deserve. We would like to wish the PO Liberté many years happy service, and to reiterate Mr. Ross Barrett statement “Kudos to an incredible team – the epitome of dedication and talent” with a big thank you to the team.

We would like to send our best wishes to PO Liberté for many years of happy service.
