Fast Ferry Holed Hitting Dock in Spain


The fast catamaran ferry Benchi Express (28 metres) hit the quay and was holed when manoeuvring to berth in high winds at the port of San Sebastián de La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain, while operating on the San Sebastián – Playa Santiago – Valle Gran Rey route on the night of 6th September.

The ferry was manoeuvring towards the dock when the wind pushed it against the quay and the hull was breached on the starboard side above the waterline. It was subsequently taken out of service for inspection and repairs, which are expected to take up to 5 days.
