Nils Dacke - Quiberon
 
 
This page is devoted to postcards and photographs of the 1975 Malmö-Travemünde ferry Nils Dacke, which spent 20 years as Brittany Ferries' Quiberon.
 
Nils Dacke was built for Lion Ferry in 1975 by Werft Nobiskrug GmbH, Rendsburg. Nils Dacke was chartered to Rederi Ab Öresund for use between Malmö-Travemünde, retaining a Lion Ferry crew. In 1976, the service became known as Saga Line, serving Helsingborg/Malmö-Travemünde. From 1980, the service was operated by TT Saga Line, between Malmö-Travemünde. In 1982, Nils Dacke was chartered to Brittany Ferries as the Quiberon between Plymouth-Santander Plymouth-Roscoff and Roscoff-Cork. Quiberon was purchased by Brittany Ferries two years later. She operated on various Brittany Ferries routes until 2002, when Quiberon finished her career between Portsmouth-Caen, whilst awaiting delivery of the delayed Mont St Michel. Quiberon was then sold to Linee Lauro, for use in the Mediterranean, initially Séte-Palma.
