North Sea Ferries


North Sea Ferries was a ferry company which operated between 1965 and 1996. The company was a joint venture between P&O and Royal Dutch Nedlloyd. In 1996 P&O purchased Royal Nedlloyd Group’s stake in the company, and North Sea Ferries was rebranded to P&O North Sea Ferries. Following P&O’s acquisition of P&O Stena Line in 2002, P&O North Sea Ferries was merged and rebranded with P&O Portsmouth under the current P&O Ferries name.
