The United Kingdom comprises thousands of islands and for many centuries transport between the main islands and the outlying communities has required reliable shipping routes, both long and short-haul, for commerce, trade and travel. Ferries have become an essential means of transport for many outlying populations and down the years routes have continually changed and been adapted to meet the requirements of the period. This remains so today, with established ferry routes in a constant state of flux, with the dire economic circumstances of the present imposing their own financial restraints upon routes and timetables. This volume presents a snapshot of the major Offshore Ferry routes as they currently stand, with details of the routes, the ships and the amenities; added to which are the outline histories of companies and links. This volume encapsulates all these strands and should prove a useful aide to all travellers.

This intelligent book is a snapshot of important offshore ferry routes as they currently stand, as well as a guide for passengers to the maze of services run by various shipping lines. It is profusely illustrated and informative and makes a valuable contribution to an oft-neglected aspect of the history of commerce that would be enjoyed by those interested in economics and the maritime industry.

The Northern Mariner/Le marin du nord

This volume presents a snapshot of the major Offshore Ferry routes as they currently stand, with details of the routes, the ships and the amenities, added to which are the outline histories of the companies and links.
The text is backed up by some good photographs and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the ferry sector.
