Ferry damaged in allision
On March 26, 2017, the "Palatine" covering the route Zeebruge-Leixoes, suffered a gash at its starboard side when docking in the port of Santander. The hull was breached above the water line on a length of about 11 meters. The shipping company made the decision to repair the damage at dock II in Astander after the ferry was unloaded in Santander. She was assisted to the Astander shipyard by the tug "El Península" on March 29. The repair will take around seven days. Photo: http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2637246Upload News
